Coronavirus (COVID-19): the policing response and what you need to know

Speeding in 20mph Zones 2019-2020

Date of request: January 27, 2021
Reference: 114/21

Request

Can you please advise on the number of speeding tickets issued in the A&S area for 20mph zones for each of these years:

  • 2019
  • 2020

 

Response

Please be aware; that when a vehicle has been detected driving at excess speed by a ‘speed camera’ they will receive a Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP). Depending on the severity of the case, the option to go on a speed awareness course, or pay a fine and receive penalty points may be included in the NIP. The driver can only receive a Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN) once the completed NIP has been returned to us and a decision on the outcome has been made.

Please find below a breakdown of the number of NIPs issued for 2019 and 2020 where a driver was detected driving at excess speed in a 20mph area.
