Number of drivers caught speeding 2011-2016

Question

For the following financial years  2011-12, 2012-13, 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17 to date – can you please tell us:

1. How many fixed speed cameras are in your police force area?

2. How many mobile speed cameras are in your police force area?

Clarification received:

To clarify, if different, I am looking to find out the number of fixed speed camera sites (Q1)

I think for Q2, we need the number of mobile speed camera units, (so if there’s mobile speed camera activity at a mobile speed camera operation, but has more than one camera, for instance as a back up, I think that would be counted as one).

3. How many drivers were caught speeding at all fixed speed camera sites?

4. How many drivers were caught speeding at all mobile speed camera sites?

5. How many fines were issued for speeding at all fixed speed camera sites?

6. How many fines were issued for speeding at all mobile speed camera sites?

7. How much revenue was raised from speeding at all fixed speed camera sites?

8. How much revenue was raised from speeding at all mobile speed camera sites?

9. Can we please have the locations of the cameras that caught the most drivers for each of the financial years to date 2016-17, the number of drivers caught and the total income from fines?

10. Can we have the number of active cameras (not just dummy housings) in each area - as at the start (1st April) of each of the following years (2011-12, 2012-13, 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16 and 2016-17).

Answer

The information requested in questions 1 and 2 has been considered and I am not obliged to supply the information you have requested.

The exemption applicable to this information is Section 21 – Information reasonably accessible by other means. This is an absolute and class based exemption and as such does not require a harm and public interest test.

A list of the all speed camera sites both fixed and mobile are published on our website. I have provided a link for reference.

In accordance with the Act, this represents a Refusal Notice for this part of your request.
