Addressing non-compliant vehicles is a high priority for roads policing, due to the risks posed to road safety, and potential links to further aspects of criminality. Currently, non-compliance information is scattered across various organisations, hindering efficient identification and intervention with high-risk vehicles. The absence of registered keepers of some vehicles further complicates matters, as nudge letter tactics cannot be applied. Thus, the following objectives were outlined for this project:  

  • Build an extensible architecture to combine vehicle non-compliance information.  
  • Demonstrate the capability that could be used to support improved prioritisation of policing resources. 
  • Demonstrate what benefits can be achieved through moving towards real-time data feeds. 
  • Provide options for capability to improve targeting of non-registered keeper vehicles. 


This project employed an agile delivery approach utilising sprint processes. Extensive stakeholder engagement occurred through the facilitation of weekly steering group meetings alongside ad hoc 1:1 session’s where necessary. Various tools were instrumental in facilitating delivery, including Bizagi to map the to-be processes and Mural to visualise and refine the vehicle intervention, prioritisation logic and implementation roadmap. 



This initiative envisions a forward-looking approach to dealing with non-compliant vehicles by refining the intervention and prioritisation logic. A prototype application was developed to bring to life a future To-Be process, highlighting key capabilities, including the near real time generation of Vehicle of Interest lists, adaptability to incorporate extra datasets, and improved vehicle prioritisation for more focused policing interventions. Further, an additional exploratory effort proposes a method for targeting non-compliant vehicles with no registered keeper, acknowledging the unique challenges they pose to current intervention methods. If operationalised, the prototype’s capabilities promise to reduce serious crime and enhance road safety, alongside the indirect benefit of increasing revenue. 



The client received a prototype application, demonstrating the art of the possible for progressing through an operational trial, a full rollout and the future state of policing non-compliant vehicles. This prototype is crucial for informing client decisions on the future approach to addressing non-compliant vehicles. 



The work accomplished within this project establishes the groundwork for the future of policing non-compliant vehicles, offering a framework of capabilities and options to increase efficiency within this high-priority area of policing.
