(1) May include oases where a fixed penalty notice was issued and not paid and referred to court.
(2) Magistrates courts data only. Fines given at the Crown court total nationally (England and Wales) less than 20 each year.
(3) Offences under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1964 and the Motor Vehicles (Speed Limits on Motorways) Regulations 1973.
Notes:
1. It is known that for some police force areas, the reporting of court proceedings in particular those relating to summary motoring offences are less than complete.
2. Every effort is made to ensure that the figures presented are accurate and complete. However it is important to note that these data have been extracted from large administrative systems generated by the courts and police force. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their limitations are taken into account when those data are used.
