Motor Vehicles: Fines

Volume 474: debated on Wednesday 2 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many Vehicle and Operator Services Agency staff will be employed to issue fixed penalty notices to vehicles where offences are detected. (197882)

The Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) employs 590 traffic and vehicle examiners, all of whom may be required to issue fixed penalty notices. There are plans to employ a further 127 enforcement staff in the coming year as a result of reinvesting Gershon VFM post savings and new funding from DFT for additional enforcement activity. All these additional staff will be trained to issue fixed penalty notices.
