Greater Manchester Police have handed out more than £100,000 in fines for careless or inconsiderate driving since 2013.
The figures reveal the number of drivers given fixed penalty notices for things like middle-lane hogging and tailgating.
Greater Manchester Police have pulled up 1,093 drivers for these offences since they were introduced in late 2013.
Of the 1,093 tickets 773 were issued for driving without due care and attention while the other 320 were for inconsiderate driving.
Each ticket carries with it a potential £100 fine and three penalty points meaning that Greater Manchester Police could have scooped up a whopping £109,300 in fines since 2013.
Careless or inconsiderate driving fines 2013
Driving without due care and attention – 185
Driving without consideration to others – 38
Drivers can opt to go on an educational course instead of paying the fine and accepting the points or they could contest the penalty altogether and go to court to appeal it.
It is unclear from the information supplied by Greater Manchester Police how many drivers took up these options.
Fines for inconsiderate driving such as the ones outlined above fall within two separate fixed penalty notice categories: driving without due care and attention; and driving without reasonable consideration to others.
Careless or inconsiderate driving fines 2014
Driving without due care and attention – 258
Driving without consideration to others – 164
Both offences were announced on 5 June 2013 by the then Road Safety Minister Stephen Hammond.
Careless or inconsiderate driving fines 2015
Driving without due care and attention – 264
Driving without consideration to others – 100
However, it would appear that the level to which forces across England and Wales are enforcing these offences varies wildly.
For example, Norfolk Constabulary have issued just two fixed penalty notices for lane indiscipline since the legislation was brought in while Wiltshire Police have issued just one for middle-lane hogging despite being home to a large part of the M4.
