Speeding Fine Solicitor Comments on New Proposed Speeding Fines and Points
It has been widely reported in the media that the British Government are planning on introducing tougher speeding penalties and fines for people caught speeding.
The amendments introduced by s. 17 Road Safety Act 2006, gives police officers extended powers as they are able to give penalty points ranging from 2 -6 points.
This would replace the law as it currently stands, which allows penalty points ranging from 3-6 points for speeding offences. The consequence is that you could literally face disqualification under the “totting up” procedure for 2 speeding offences alone at 45mph in a 30mph zone which seems incredibly unfair. If you are a newly qualified driver you will lose your driving licence if 6 points or more are accumulated and therefore one mistake is costly.
The proposed amendments are not yet in force, but will no doubt be the focal point of much consultation.
