Avon and Somerset Constabulary do not receive any revenue for fines collected. All money collected is returned to the Treasury. Any amount fined at a magistrates’ court will vary from case to case. HM Courts and Tribunals Service collect all fines. You may wish to contact them as they may hold some of the information you require.
