HC Deb 08 March 2004 vol 418 c1312W
Lady Hermon

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many motorists in Northern Ireland were convicted of speed-related offences in each police district in the last five years for which figures are available as a result of being caught by a speed camera. [157668]

Mr. Paul Murphy

The Chief Constable has advised me that speed cameras are only operated by trained Road Policing Officers who are a regional resource and therefore not dedicated to a specific District Command Unit.

During the past five years 72,093 individuals were detected exceeding the speed limit and were accordingly in receipt of a Notice of Intention to Prosecute.
