General description
This annual statistical bulletin contains data relating to motoring offences on:
• Court proceedings against motoring offenders (2006 – 2016)
• Civil parking enforcements, carried out by local authorities, are not covered in this bulletin.

Equivalent data for England can be found at the links for the Home Office and the Ministry of Justice. Transport Scotland publish the number of motor vehicle offences recorded by the police by type of offence in the ‘Road Transport Vehicles’ chapter of the compendium publication titled “Scottish Transport Statistics”: (http://www.transport.gov.scot/statistics/scottish-transport-statistics-all-editions). The Scottish Government publishes the number of people proceeded against in court for motor vehicle offences in the Statistical Bulletin titled “Criminal Proceedings in Scotland”: (http://www.gov.scot/Topics/Statistics/Browse/Crime-Justice/Datasets/DatasetsCrimProc).
The Police Service of Northern Ireland produces statistics on fixed penalty notices: (https://www.psni.police.uk/inside-psni/Statistics/fixed-penalty-notice-fpn-and-discretionary-disposal-statistics-for-traffic-offences/). The Northern Ireland Courts and Tribunals Service publish the number of defendants disposed of in the magistrates’ courts for motoring offences: (http://www.courtsni.gov.uk/en-GB/Services/Statistics%20and%20Research/Pages/default.aspx).


Data collection and calculation
Data Source
The information on court proceedings reproduces the statistics compiled by the Ministry of Justice in their criminal justice series (https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/criminal-justice-statistics).

Coverage
The coverage in ‘Police Powers and Procedures’ includes the use of police powers to issue fixed penalty notices for motoring offences. This is broken down by offence type and how they were dealt with (eg. penalty paid or fine registered at court). The data presented are drawn from returns from police forces in England and Wales. The figures also include notices issued by police employed traffic wardens for parking offences. It should be stressed here that most traffic wardens are now employed by local authorities, and their activities are not covered here.
Below is a list of the local authorities in Wales who have taken over the responsibility for parking enforcement and when this occurred:

Neath Port Talbot - 1 June 1999
Carmarthenshire - 1 June 1999
Denbighshire - 1 July 2004
Conwy - 1 Sept 2006
Gwynedd - 1 April 2007
Isle of Anglesey - 1 April 2007
Wrexham - 1 March 2008
Swansea - 1 Sept 2008
Cardiff - 5 July 2010
Pembrokeshire - 1 Feb 2011
Powys - 1 April 2011
Merthyr Tydfil - 11 Jan 2012
Ceredigion - 4 June 2012
Rhondda Cynon Taff - 1 Aug 2012
Bridgend - 1 April 2013
Vale of Glamorgan - 1 April 2013
Flintshire - 1 Oct 2013

Statistics on Vehicle Defect Rectification notices for motoring offences no longer appear in this bulletin as they were withdrawn from 2009.

Frequency of publication
Annual

Data reference periods
2006 to 2016

Rounding applied
No rounding has been applied to the data. For entries where there are no data "*" .

Revisions information

Statistical quality
The statistics are used both within and outside the Welsh Government to monitor trends in driving offences and as a baseline for further analysis. Breath test statistics are used to measure the effectiveness of drink–drive campaigns by police forces.

Timeliness and Punctuality
The statistics on court proceedings relate to cases in the magistrates’ courts in Wales during 12 months ending December 2016
