Available information relates to the number of fixed penalty notices (FPNs) issued to motorists by the police in England and Wales for offences relating to neglect of traffic directions. Data on FPNs reported to the Home Office do not separately identify individual offences from within this group, such as those issued specifically for infringement of advance stop lines.

There were 168,002 FPNs issued for neglect of traffic directions in 2009, 148,179 in 2010 and 118,129 in 2011. Data for 2012 are scheduled for publication on 3 April 2014.
