Coronavirus (COVID-19)

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

FPN’s issued for speed, mobile phone, seat belt (3174/20)

 

Request

Can you please provide the following information for the period January 2017 – December 2019 on a month by month breakdown?

1) Total number of NIP’s issued per month for excess speed, driving whilst using a mobile phone, and failure to wear seatbelt.

2) Breakdown of disposal outcomes eg FPN, court disposal, NDORS referral, cancelled / NFA.

If possible i do NOT want any emergency service vehicles in the figures as the inclusion will skew the results for cancelled / NFA as i understand the reason for claiming exemption and am not seeking this information. If however it cannot be excluded then i will accept the results with them in.

EG

January 2017

Excess speed 10,000 NIP’s

FPN – 1000

Court disposal – 1000

NDORS – 7000

NFA / cancel – 1000

Repeated in the same format for mobile phone and seatbelt each month, and for each month until December 2019

Response

Please find attached 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.
