20 mph Speed Limit (1738A/21)


Your policy on enforcing 20mph speed limit zones – do you enforce them, what is the threshold for issuing a speeding ticket, summons or prosecution?

How many drivers have been issued with speeding tickets, fines, summonses, prosecutions, awareness courses or other form of enforcement action in the past 12 months?


The request is purely in relation to 20mph zones.


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.


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

Section 31 (1) (a) (b) (c) (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 [1738A_PIT_01].

As recommended as good practice by the Information Commissioner’s Office a version of this response may be published on the West Midlands Police website.
