M6 Camera (13325_16)


I would like to request information relating to the temporary automatic camera device that was erected on the M6 Southbound carriageway between junction 8-7.

I would like details of the number of vehicles recorded over the temporary 40mph speed limit and average speed of those vehicles.


  1. a) 1200hrs on Friday 2nd September and 1200hrs on Tuesday 6th September 2016
  2. b) 1200hrs on Friday 9th September 2016 and 1200hrs on Tuesday 13th September 2016


I can confirm that we hold information in relation to the number of vehicles exceeding the speed limit (see as follows) however average speed is not held.

  1. a) 1,045
  1. b) 1,103


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.
