Kirsty made this Freedom of Information request to Traffic Penalty Tribunal

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

Traffic Penalty Tribunal did not have the information requested.

Dear Traffic Penalty Tribunal,

I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to request the following information in regards to uninsured drivers in the UK. I would like to know:

1. The number of uninsured drivers on the road each year for the last 5 tax years.

2. Categorised by how they got caught (e.g. cameras, unmarked cars, etc.)

Please provide the above information digitally, preferably in the form of an excel spreadsheet.
If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits identified in Section 12, please provide advice and assistance, under your Section 16 obligations, as to how I can refine my request to be included in the scope of the Act.

In any case, if you can identify ways that my request could be refined please provide further advice and assistance to indicate this.

I look forward to your response within 20 working days, as stipulated by the Act.

If you have any queries please don’t hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to clarify what I am asking for.

Yours faithfully,

Kirsty Card

Stuart Wilson, Traffic Penalty Tribunal

Dear Ms Card

Thank you for your request for information, which was received by the Traffic Penalty Tribunal on 19 August 2018.

Please note that the Adjudicators (known as the Traffic Penalty Tribunal) appointed under the powers in the Traffic Management Act 2004 are not within the definition of a "public authority" in schedule 1 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. Consequently, the duties created by that Act do not apply to the Adjudicators.

Furthermore, the Traffic Penalty Tribunal considers appeals against penalties issued for parking, bus lane and moving traffic contraventions in England (outside London) and Wales. The Tribunal does not therefore hold the information you require.

Yours sincerely

Stuart Wilson
