Fixed Penalty Notice statistics

1.8 million fixed penalty notices for road traffic offences were issued in 2010, according to Government figures

The statistics are made up from returns by Police forces across England and Wales and show a 10% decrease in the number of offences when compared to 2009. Offences peaked in 2003 with 3.5 million FPNs issued.

The largest increase, in percentage terms, for road traffic offences is seen in load offences and failure to wear a crash helmet for motorcycle offences. The largest decrease in offences was for waiting, obstruction and parking offences. The full release can be found on the Home Office website
