Speeding

Speeding remains one of the most common causes of injuries and deaths on our roads.

We would urge members of the public to always drive to the conditions of the road and remember, the limit is not a target. Driving over the limit not only increases the chance of an accident but also the severity of the consequences.

Speeding penalties, that involve the magistrates’ court, are categorised into three main bands and vary depending on your weekly income and how fast you’re driving at the time of the offence. The table below details more information.
