Fixed Speed Cameras are the most common type of speed camera.

Back in April 2017 speeding laws in the UK changed. At the time research from Honest John revealed that a whopping 84% of UK drivers didn’t know what these new changes were. More worryingly, 56% didn’t know changes were coming at all. Fingers crossed they’re now fully aware…

If not, don’t worry, we’ve created a handy little guide to speeding laws in the UK, take a read.

How much will I have to pay if caught speeding?

The new speeding laws see a harsher take on speeding with Band C speeding receiving a fine of 150% of their weekly income as well as six points or a disqualification. Previously, most people would have been charged with a ‘minor offence’ and handed a Fixed Penalty Notice (FNP) which would mean they’d receive a fine of £100 and three points on their licence.

Legal speed limit (mph) Recorded speed (mph) Recorded speed (mph) Recorded speed (mph)
Band A Band B Band C
20 21-30 31-40 41 and above
30 31-40 41-50 51 and above
40 41-55 56-65 66 and above
50 51-65 66-75 76 and above
60 61-80 81-90 91 and above
70 71-90 91-100 101 and above
Points/ disqualification 3 points Disqualify 7-28 days OR 4-6 points Disqualify 7-56 days OR 6 points
Fine 50% of relevant weekly income* 100% of relevant weekly income* 150% of relevant weekly income

Luckily for those that take home a fair wedge each month there’s a maximum fine you have to pay if caught speeding- £1,000 on normal roads, or £2,500 on a motorway.

However, you can avoid the points and opt for a speed awareness course if it’s offered to you.

However, not everyone is eligible for an awareness course as this varies depending on which police force is handling your offence and also whether or not you have been convicted of any other speeding offences in the past three years.

Speed awareness courses on the rise

In 2017 2.3 million drivers from England and Wales were caught speeding, equating to a shocking four motorists every minute.

In total, 97% of speeding offences were detected by camera, with the remaining 3% detected by police and radar scanners.

In 44% of cases, the offender was sent on a speed awareness course, while 34% received fixed penalty notices.

Some 11% of offences were cancelled and 10% resulted in court action.

It’s estimated that around a quarter of all British drivers have now been on a speed awareness course.

The UK’s war on speeding

Intelligent speed limiting devices set to be introduced to all new cars from 2022

Department for Transport (DfT) figures show that 220 people were killed and a further 1,493 were seriously injured in crashes on Britain’s roads in 2017 where a vehicle exceeding the speed limit was a contributory factor.

The DfT said new provisionally agreed EU would apply to the UK despite Brexit results.

  2. This design is spectacular! You definitely know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved
    to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that,
    how you presented it. Too cool!

  3. Aw, this was a really nice post. Spending some time and actual effort
    to produce a great article… but what can I say… I put things off a
    whole lot and never manage to get anything done.

  4. Howdy this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  5. Greetings! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a
    quick shout out and tell you I really enjoy reading through your blog posts.
    Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that go over
    the same subjects? Thanks a ton!

  6. I wanted to thank you for this good read!!
    I definitely loved every little bit of it.
    I have you book-marked to look at new things you post…
