Speeding Offences (114A/20)

Request

I would like figures for the total speeding offences recorded by West Midlands Police in 2020 for:

W/C – March 2

W/C – March 9

W/C – March 16

W/C – March 23

W/C – March 30

W/C – April 6

W/C – April 13

W/C – April 20

I would also like the figures broken down separately for Wolverhampton, Walsall, Dudley, Sandwell and Birmingham and, where possible, the speed recorded for each offence and what the speed limit on the road was.

Response

We can confirm that some relevant information is held by West Midlands Police. However, while the majority of the information is attached to this email I am afraid that I am not required to release all of the information requested.

Please see attached document, which provides figures for speeding offences on the requested dates.  Please note that to break the figures down separately for Wolverhampton, Walsall, Dudley, Sandwell and Birmingham would require a manual search which would exceed the FOI time limit.

REASONS FOR DECISION

The withheld information is exempt by virtue of the following exemption:

Section 31 (1) (a) (b) (Law enforcement)

This exemption and explanatory notes are shown here:

In line with the above, I am required to complete a Prejudice Test/Public Interest Test (PIT) on disclosure. Please find this PIT attached [114A_PIT_01]
