Road Traffic Infringements

Volume 455: debated on Thursday 18 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what targets he has set police forces in their tackling of road traffic infringements. (115949)

The Roads Policing Strategy Statement agreed between ACPO, the Home Office and the Department for Transport sets five roads policing objectives: to deny criminals the use of the roads by enforcing the law, to reduce road casualties, to tackle the threat of terrorism, to reduce anti-social use of the roads and to enhance public confidence and reassurance by patrolling the roads. The update to the National Community Safety Plan issued in November last year set implementation of the Strategy as a key action for the police in 2007-08. How the Strategy is implemented is a matter for individual chief officers.
