I have been informed by PSNI that information in respect of motoring offences committed involving foreign registered vehicles is recorded by driver ethnicity as opposed to vehicle origin, therefore it is not possible answer this question.

From 1 April 2007, PSNI will record offender nationality.

Does this answer the above question?
