Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50225815
  • Date: 23 March 2010
  • Public Authority: Cumbria Constabulary
  • Summary: The complainant requested the number of prosecutions for speeding offences on the M6 during 2007; this was to be broken down into 5mph speed bands from 70mph to 90+mph. Having originally refused to provide a breakdown of the numbers of prosecutions (although a total figure was provided), the public authority went on to provide the majority of the information. However, it declined to provide a breakdown of the two lowest speed thresholds, i.e. 70-75mph and 76-80mph, stating this was withheld under the exemptions at sections 31 (law enforcement) and 38 (health and safety). Some further information, which was identified during the Commissioner’s investigation, was withheld under section 12 (cost of compliance exceeds appropriate limit).
