Speed Camera Tolerance (211A/23)


  1. Is there a speed tolerance on the fixed cameras used in your force area, and if so, what is the tolerance? For example, 10% + 2mph.
  2. How many fixed speed cameras are installed in your force area?
  3. How many fixed speed cameras in your force area are a) permanently turned on, b) permanently turned off and c) temporarily in use?


Q2 & Q3 – Please find attached (211A_23_attachment.pdf).

Q1 – I can confirm that we do have a tolerance. However, we are withholding details of that tolerance as it is exempt by virtue of the following exemptions:

Section 31(1)(a)(b) – Law enforcement
Section 38(1)(a)(b) – Health and safety

These exemptions and explanatory notes are shown here:

In line with the above, I am required to complete a Prejudice Test/Public Interest Test (PIT) on disclosure. Please find this PIT attached (211A_23_PIT.pdf).
