Fixed Penalty Notices Issued to Goods Vehicles for Speeding

Question

1. The total number of Fixed Penalty Notices (FPNs) handed to goods vehicles which were recorded travelling over their vehicle-specific speeding restriction in your force region in 2015 and 2016.

2. Please could you also share the fastest speeds recorded by goods vehicles within your force region in 2015 and 2016. As above, please could you breakdown the information by goods vehicles not exceeding 7.5 tonnes and goods vehicles exceeding 7.5 tonnes.

Answer
