Dear Olympic Delivery Authority,

I refer to the article at http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-... and in particular the following:

"Olympic VIP cars will not be allowed to exceed speed limits."

and

"every individual journey taken by Games VIPs will be tracked by computer"

Please assist me with my enquiries into this matter by answering the following questions:

1) a computer tracking system is able to measure the speed of individual vehicles and compare this with the speed limit. Will this feature be turned on?

2) if not, why not?

3) if it is turned on what procedures will be used to deal with any olympic driver who exceeds the speed limit.

Please note that "replies" which involve attachments in proprietary file formats are not acceptable. A reply which is not in plain text format will be deemed to be a refusal to answer.

Yours faithfully,

David Hansen

Dear Information Officer who could not be bothered to provide their name,

"We aim to respond to all requests made under the Environmental Information Regulations 2004"

Please note that you have made the same elementary mistake with this enquiry as with my other one. This enquiry is nothing to do with environmental information.

Yours sincerely,

David Hansen

Information Officer, Olympic Delivery Authority

The information officer too arrogant to give their name's reply was, as you can see, not in easy to access plain text form, so here it is in readable form.

Dear Mr Hansen,

We refer to your request dated 30th August 2011 requesting the following information:

I refer to the article at http://www.dallymail.co.uk/news/article-... 18/Traffic-lights-turn-green-Olympic-chiefs-ordinary-drivers-forced-bus-lanes.html and in particular the following:

"Olympic VIP cars will not be allowed to exceed speed limits" and
"every individual journey taken by Games VIPs will be tracked by computer"

Please assist me with my enquiries into this matter by answering the following questions:

1) a computer tracking system is able to measure the speed of individual vehicles and compare this with the speed limit. Will this feature be turned on?

2) if not, why not?

3) if it is turned on what procedures will be used to deal with any olympic driver who exceeds the speed limit.

We can confirm that we do not hold information of the description specified in your request. We are therefore unable to provide you with the information you require.

The speed limits and traffic rules during Games time will be enforced and covered by existing legislation and any speed violations will be enforced by the police.

Games vehicles and the their drivers using the Olympic Route Network come under the control of the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) and it is LOCOG’s responsibility to train, monitor and manage the vehicles and the behaviour of the drivers. Therefore LOCOG might be able to assist you in relation to your questions.

Please note that LOCOG is a private company limited by guarantee and is not a public authority subject to the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
If you wish to re-direct your request to LOCOG you may contact them in writing either via email at enquirieslondon2012.com or by writing to:

We hope this is of assistance. Under Regulation 11 you may make representations to the ODA if it appears to you that the ODA has failed to comply with a requirement of Environmental Information Regulations in relation to this request. Representations must be made in writing to the ODA no later than 40 working days after the date on which you believe that the ODA has failed to comply. You should write to the Information Officer, Olympic Delivery Authority, One Churchill Place, Canary Wharf, London, E14 5LN. If you do wish to complain, it would assist the review process if you are able to state the grounds for your complaint and to identify any relevant factors you wish to be taken into account. The ODA shall on receipt of the representations consider them and any supporting evidence produced by you, and decide if it has complied with the requirement. The ODA shall notify you of its decision as soon as possible and no later than 40 working days after the date of receipt of the representations.

If you are not satisfied with the outcome of your complaint, you may apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision. Generally, the Information Commissioner will not make a decision unless you have exhausted the complaint procedure provided by the ODA. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at: The Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 AF.
