Coronavirus (COVID-19)

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

Coleshill Heath Road (10537_16)


I am particularly interested in establishing information regarding the regular speed camera activity on the drive way of the electrical substation on Coleshill Heath Road. In particular, I am seeking information regarding the following please:-
– How many times have speed cameras been deployed on the road during April – June 2016, the second quarter of 2016?
-How many motorists have been recorded as speeding at each intervention?
– What speeds have been recorded during this period i.e speed ranges 30-40, 41-50 and above 50


Please find enclosed our response.

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.
