Attorney-General Questions: Dangerous Driving

David Morris: To ask the Attorney-General how many drivers were prosecuted for causing death by careless or inconsiderate driving where their speed was recorded at less than 35 mph in the last two years for which figures are available.

The Solicitor-General: The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) does not hold any information centrally regarding the alleged driving speeds for any given offence, and therefore maintains no central record of the number of drivers that were prosecuted for causing death by careless or inconsiderate driving where their speed was recorded at less than 35 mph. Such data could not be reasonably obtained locally or nationally other than by reviewing individual case files which would incur a disproportionate cost.
