Request

Further to FOI 3174/20

I am now seeking data that is representative of the whole results to enable a statistically reliable result to be given.

i am now seeking the following to assist with road safety research.

For June 2017, 2018 and 2019 please select the 1st 25 offences that were filed in each category, Education, FPN, Court and Cancelled and provide the speeds that each of those vehicles exceeded the speed limit by

eg 2017

Education- 8mph, 9mph 10mph ( and so on for 25 vehicles in total ) FPN – 12mph, 11MPH, 14MPH ( and so on for 25 vehicles in total ) court – 20MPH, 19MPH, 16MPH ( and so on for 25 vehicles in total ) cancelled – 10MPH, 15MPH 20MPH, 30MPH  ( and so on for 25 vehicles in total )

Response

Please note that these data should be interpreted with caution. We have provided the data for the whole of June for 2017, 2018 and 2019, this can be filtered to obtain the data required.

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.

I would also mention that although we aim to provide data where asked, however sending multiple / overlapping requests in a short period can place an administrative burden on the Force to process, locate and retrieve the data.

It is important to note that requests of the same /similar nature can be aggregated for cost purposes as well considering the burden.

You may wish to consider this before submitting future FOI requests.
