Motorists Pay £30M in Speeding Fines a Year.

Last year, British motorists were fined £30m for speeding last year and nearly 1,000 drivers a week appeared before magistrates for breaking the speed limit.


Police data suggests that the worst offences are committed by a growing minority of drivers.


62% of drivers who were caught speeding said that they were spotted by fixed speed cameras, 22% caught by police with a camera at the roadside and 10% say they were caught by police without a camera.


Many drivers often admit they regularly exceed the speed limit without getting caught in any way.


14% of drivers say they memorise where police are most likely to patrol in their area to avoid detection whilst other drivers rely totally on devices situated inside of their cars, such as SatNavs, which can detect fixed speed cameras and alert them to avoid getting caught.


However, the Government have recently announced that trials of an 80mph speed limit could take place soon, around August this year.


But if the speed limit is increased to 80mph, it is possible that only those driving well over 100mph would receive a court summons.
