Coronavirus (COVID-19)

How we are working to keep our FOI Requests running during COVID-19

Speed Camera (5576_18)


Under the Freedom of Information Act, I would like to know for each named speed camera location the number of speeding tickets handed out over the last 12 months.


Also, if mobile speed cameras have been used, could you also supply information about the number of speeding tickets handed out over the last 12 months.  As part of this, could you also give the 10 locations where most tickets were handed out and how many at each location.


Could I also have separate figures for the 12 months preceding that for both static and mobile cameras.


I would like the information in the format of the named location of each camera and the number of fines at that site over the time period.


Please find attached our response where we have provided 2016 and 2017 data for mobile enforcement sites, and the old Gatso sites that have now been converted into mobile sites as we no longer have static cameras. Please note that the data does not include average or variable speed cameras


Please note that these data should be interpreted with caution. Comparing numbers of incidents/crimes can be misleading and does not necessarily indicate the likelihood of someone being a victim of crime. In addition, the number of incidents/crimes recorded in an area over a period of time can be influenced by a number of factors. Consequently statistics on incidents/crimes for one period may not necessarily be a good indicator of future incidents in that area.


Every effort is made to ensure that the figures presented are accurate and complete. However, it is important to note that these data have been extracted from a number of data sources used by forces for police purposes. The detail collected to respond specifically to your request is subject to the inaccuracies inherent in any large scale recording system. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when interpreting those data.


The figures provided therefore are our best interpretation of relevance of data to your request, but you should be aware that the collation of figures for ad hoc requests may have limitations and this should be taken into account when those data are used.
