Road Traffic Offences: Speed Limits

Question for Home Office

UIN 186975, tabled on 1 November 2018

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, if he will make an estimate of (a) the amount of money raised for the public purse from fees paid by people undertaking speed awareness courses in the last five years and (b) the cost to the public purse of running such courses in that same time period.

The intention of speed awareness courses is not to raise money for general government expenditure. Anyone committing a speeding offence who accepts a speed awareness course in lieu of other police enforcement action is required to pay to attend a course; course fees are set at a level that covers the cost of the courses and related expenses.
