To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what comparative assessment his Department has made of methods used in other European countries to detect and prevent speeding offences.

Andrew Jones

The Department has not carried out a formal comparative assessment of methods used in other European countries to detect and prevent speeding. However, the Department does have ongoing discussions with other Member States on road safety issues, including tackling speed. The Department also regularly requests European comparisons when carrying out research into road safety topics.
