The enforcement speed for each UK Police Force for breaking of the 30 mph speed limit

Stephanie Watson made this Freedom of Information request to National Police Chiefs' Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear National Police Chiefs' Council,

Sussex Police measure this at 36mph, not the 35mph used by Kent Police and recommended by the ACPO 2011 guidelines. The Sussex Safer Road Partnership mirrors this 36 mph target. What do other Police Forces in the UK use as a limit for enforcement when the 30 mph limit has been broken?

Yours faithfully,

Stephanie Watson

National Police Chiefs' Council


A Freedom of Information request has been received by the NPCC on 14/11/2018.

The NPCC is not yet a designated body covered by the terms of the Freedom of Information legislation. Following the dissolution of the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO), designation under the Freedom of Information Act did not automatically transfer across to the National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC).

For these reasons it is important that you clearly understand that not being bound by the legislation means that the NPCC cannot apply exemptions to disclosure, engage the fees regulations and there is no recourse from the applicant’s perspective to the Information Commissioner’s Office.

NPCC Acknowledgement:

It is the intention of the NPCC to comply with the spirit of the legislation and I hope to be in a position to respond to your within the statutory timescale of 20 working days subject to the provisions of the Act.

In the unlikely event that the NPCC is unable to meet the 20 working day deadline, you will be informed as soon as possible and given a revised time-scale for response.

Kind regards.
