Speeding fines set to increase as of today

Speeding fines of up to 175% of your weekly income will come into effect as of today.

As of April 24th, 2017, Drivers who are caught speeding will face much tougher penalties. The sentencing guidelines are in place to make drivers “Think Twice” before putting their foot down.

In 2015, over 240 people were killed in crashes when a driver was breaking the speed limit on Britain’s roads. The Sentencing Council said it wanted a “clear increase in penalty” as the severity of these offences only increases.

Under the new guidelines, the worst offenders will face fines between 125 and 175% of their weekly income – the starting point in most cases will be 150%.

The maximum fine of £1,000, or £2,500 if on a motorway, will be staying the same, as will the minimum fine of £100 and 3 points on your licence.

The new penalties will not effect the majority of law abiding road users, except for making the roads much safer for all.
