Highest Speeds (277A/22)


From the start of 2017 to the end of 2021 – the 10 fastest vehicle speeds recorded by the force each year, either through speed cameras, mobile units, traffic officers or any other way.

I would like the information provided separately for each year – that is the 10 fastest speeds recorded in each year – and to also include the location and road name where the speed was recorded, the make and model of the car and the outcome (such as fine, disqualification, prison sentence).


Please find attached (277A_22_attachment.pdf). Please note, with regard to ‘outcome’, the closest information we hold on our Traffic Investigation Unit system is ‘Disposal Completion Method’ (Prosecuted/Cancelled) and therefore we are unable to provide court outcomes, such as fine, disqualification, prison sentence.

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.
