Mr. Mayhew

Numbers of findings of guilt for various types of speed limit offences are published annually in "Offences relating to motor vehicles, England and Wales"—table 4, page 14 of the supplementary tables for 1981. In 1981 there were 235,000 findings of guilt for exceeding a 30 mph speed limit. Information on the speed being travelled at the time of the offence is not collected centrally.
