Driving Offences: Fines

Volume 485: debated on Monday 15 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what proportion of foreign drivers did not pay fines for motoring offences in (a) 2006, (b) 2007 and (c) the last 12 months. (241768)

Financial penalties for motoring offences can take the form of a fixed penalty notice offered by the police or a fine imposed by the courts.

Information held centrally by the Home Office on fixed penalty notices issued by the police, and the Court Proceedings Database, held by the Office for Criminal Justice Reform, does not identify the nationality status of drivers issued with a financial penalty.
