Higher speeding fines come into force next month

Drivers caught speeding will soon face stricter penalties and much higher fines, based on what they earn.

From April 24, 2017, new rules will come into place in the UK, this will mean offenders could now be charged up to 175% of their weekly income. In the UK, the current mini penalty for speeding is a £100 fine and three penalty points on your licence. The maximum fine is £1,000 or £2,500 for motorway offences.

New guidelines set to come in next month will see those caught driving over 101mph in a 70mph speed limit potentially disqualified for up to 56 days, with a fine of between 125 to 175 per cent of their weekly income.

If you’re caught going between 31 and 40mph in a 30mph zone will will get three penalty points and a fine between 25 to 75 per cent of your weekly income. Many drivers can get away without points and a fine by paying to attend a speed awareness course.

New legislation follows as tougher penalties that have been brought into place for motorists caught using a mobile phone behind the wheel. The penalties have now doubled for those caught, from three points and a £100 fine to six points and a £200 fine.

How much will I be fined if I’m caught speeding?

The new speeding system has been split into three bands, the bands will rate the severity of the offence based on the speed limit. Band A will relate to an offence that is between 1 and 10mph over the speed limit. Offences in the B band are for drivers who are caught from 11 to 21mph over the legal speed limit, a band C offence is above 21mph and above the stated speed limit.

  • Band A fine is 50% of your weekly wage.
  • Band B fine is 100% of your weekly wage
  • Band C fine is 150% of your weekly wage rising up to 175%

I would recommend Lease4Less and the consultant James Rushton, he kept me up to speed with information and when the car was likely to arrive, fantastic.
