Can you provide me with the statistical results of the mobile speed camera activities, when located in our villages "Winterbourne Abbas and Winterbourne Steepleton", surveying the speed of vehicles on the A35.

I'm not aware of how much information is available but I'm after the following
•           Date and time of Surveillance
•           Location
•           Number of Examined vehicles (i.e. the number of vehicles
•           type of vehicle
•           Number of Vehicles failed (Over speed limit)
•           Level of failure e.g. No. greater than 30, number greater than 40 etc.
•           And by type. e.g. car van lorry etc.

1.       How many traffic collisions were recorded in your territory between January 1st 2018 – January 1st 2019? Could this information be provided in a spreadsheet that shows the number of collisions and which roads they took place on? (eg, 22 collisions on Taylor Road between Jan 1st 2019 and Jan 1st 2019)
2.       How many speed camera fines were issued between January 1st 2018 – January 1st 2019 in your territory? Could you provide this information in a spreadsheet that shows the road where the speed camera is, when they happened, and the amount of paid fines? Could you also include the total amount of money made from speed camera fines. (eg, Taylor Road speed camera, 12 fines issued, 10 paid)

  1. How many speed cameras does your police force operate? Please differentiate between average speed check cameras and 'standard' fixed cameras.
  2. Does your police force have a universal rule across the constabulary to set activation thresholds for speed cameras (EG 10% +2mph for all cameras)? Please differentiate between average speed check cameras and fixed cameras.
  3. If you do have a universal activation threshold, what is this threshold? Please differentiate between average speed check cameras and standard cameras, and differentiate between different speed limit zones and their respective thresholds, if the threshold formula varies across differing limits.
  4. If your force does not have a universal threshold rule, please give me the highest threshold (EG 15mph over the limit), and the lowest threshold (EG 0mph over the limit), used by cameras in your constabulary, listing the two locations of the cameras to which these thresholds apply. If your force operates average speed check cameras as well as fixed cameras, please give the highest and lowest thresholds for both types of camera, listing their locations.

Clarification on thresholds:

EG if the speed limit is 50mph, the "threshold" at which a camera would be triggered (typically leading to a notice of intended prosecution) might be 55mph, so any vehicle travelling below 55mph would not trigger the camera.
