§ Mr. Michael
The information requested is not available centrally nor is information available to distinguish whether or not speeding offences dealt with by fines were detected by automatic cameras. However, 523W the average fine for all speeding offences in England and Wales is given in the table, together with the number of camera detected offences dealt with by court proceedings.
The majority of speeding offences detected by automatic cameras are dealt with by fixed penalty notice, the current charge being £40. The number of such offences for England and Wales is also contained in the table.
Such figures by individual police force area could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
