Careless Driving (3518_15)


Figures for the number of drivers issued with fixed penalty notices for careless driving during this period.

Please break the figures down by the two offence codes: CD10 for driving without due care and attention or CD30 – driving without reasonable consideration for others.

Figures for the number of drivers offered an awareness course as an alternative to a fixed penalty notice for the offences above. Please break the figures down by offence code.

If feasible within FOI cost limits, please break down the above figures by offence observed (for example, driving too closely behind another driver, remaining in an overtaking lane unnecessarily or using the incorrect lane at roundabouts).

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.

If you decide to write an article / use the enclosed data we would ask you to take into consideration the factors highlighted in this document so as to not mislead members of the public or official bodies, or misrepresent the relevance of the whole or any part of this disclosed material.
