Good afternoon,

 

I write in relation to your request for the following:

 

I would like to request the total number of people fined for driving with
unauthorised vehicle modifications within the police force’s area of
responsibility in the last year (2020).

 

It is not possible to progress your request at this time, as clarification
is needed from you to enable us to locate the information you have asked
for.

 

We have consulted with our Motoring Unit who advise that vehicle
modifications can cover a number of car parts which include exhausts,
tyres, lights, spoilers, engines, windows, wheels, etc. There is not a
specific offence with regards to illegally modifying a vehicle.

 

In order to retrieve the information, please can you provide specific
details or provide the Act and section you require us to search on?

In line with the Freedom of Information Act 2000 Section 10(6), the 20
working day timescale will be suspended until the required clarification
has been received, restarting on the date when the information is
received.  If we do not receive clarification from you then your request
will be closed 20 working days from the date of this email.

 

Kind regards,
