New speeding regulations


Drivers responsible for the most serious speeding offences are set to face harsher penalties under new sentencing guidelines for magistrates.
The court can consider further adjustment for any aggravating or mitigating factors and identify whether any combination of these, or other relevant factors, should result in an upward or downward adjustment.
The maximum fines allowed by law remain the same, so speeding drivers cannot be fined more than £1,000 unless the offence takes place on a motorway, where the limit is £2,500.
