Speeding (1517A/22)


I would like to know the top 10 roads where motorists were caught speeding from the start of 2022 up to now for each of Wolverhampton, Walsall, Dudley, Sandwell and Birmingham.

I would like the figures to include the name of the road and the total number of drivers caught speeding (issued with fines, given points on their licence or offered driving courses) for each borough/city. I would also like details of whether they were caught by a speed camera (fixed or variable), police mobile van or some other way.


Please find attached our response and be advised that this data only refers to offences collated by the Camera Enforcement Unit; local initiatives or CMPG may have issued fines, however to locate and retrieve this information and break this down by road name would exceed the cost threshold under FOI.

Therefore, 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.
