New speeding fines introduced

Quite Draconian new speeding fines have recently been introduced.

The above chart shows the different bands.  For example, if you were doing 43 mph in a 40 mph zone, you'd be in band A.  The police normally allow a 10% error, so they'd probably ignore 43 mph, but not necessarily so. However, if you were doing 52 mph in a 40 mph zone, you would be in band B.

The following is what could happen:

  • Band A means any combination of 3 points on your licence and a fine of up to 50% of
           your weekly
  • Band B means any combination of 4 to 6 points on your licence, a disqualification of 7
           to 28 days and a fine of up to 100% of your weekly earnings.
  • Band C means any combination of 6 points on your licence a disqualification of 7 to 56
           days and a fine of up to 150% of your weekly earnings.
