The Ministry of Justice publishes information on the number of prosecutions for criminal offences in the Outcomes by Offence data tools.

Offences covered include the offence of ‘other obstruction, waiting and parking offences’, where this offence is most likely to be covered. However, to identify whether the prosecutions are for charging electric vehicles on the street specifically would require examination of individual court records, which would be of disproportionate costs.
