Speeding offence prosecutions in the magistrates

The number of motorists facing a prosecution for a speeding offence in the magistrates court has reached a record high with 1 million people being prosecuted for speeding in 2015.

New figures from the Department of Transport show that speeding offence prosecutions have risen by more than 16% in the past two years. This has resulted in a huge number of motorists requiring the service of a speeding offence solicitor.

This has also resulted in a vast increase in the number of people facing a possible driving ban for speeding, once again requiring the service of a speeding offence solicitor.

These figures show that speeding offences were the only motoring offence to have risen over the last few years. Dangerous driving charges and driving without insurance charge have been on the decline.

An additional problem is that more and more people are facing a driving ban for speeding because they are very quickly reaching 12 points on the driving licence and face a totting up driving ban. Once again a specialist traffic lawyer, like ourselves, should be instructed as soon as the problem arises so that the motorist can avoid a driving ban.

Dangerous driving prosecution for driving while tired

An analysis of over 4500 accidents by the AAA foundation for traffic safety in Washington has found that even mild drowsiness can result in a 30% increase in the risk of a road traffic accident and the possibility of a prosecution for dangerous driving.

Drivers who lose one or two hours of sleep the night before driving  risk being involved in a road traffic accident and, it is claimed that moderate sleep deprivation causes dangerous driving just as much as being drunk, because reaction times get longer.

It is thought that at least half of the cases of causing death by dangerous driving involve the fault of tired drivers.

Motorists should take extreme care to avoid whilst driving overtired. Should they be involved in a road traffic accident they could very well face a prosecution for dangerous driving or, in the worst case scenario, a prosecution for causing death by dangerous driving.

Speeding tickets issued incorrectly

Greater Manchester police have issued a warning to motorists that speeding fines apparently issued by the police which contact the motorist by email are a scam and should not be responded to.

There have been reports of a number of bogus emails purporting to be from Greater Manchester Police issuing speeding fines. The police do not issue speeding tickets by email. Under no circumstances should they be responded to.

Should you receive any speeding ticket either by post or, online feel free to contact us at TrafficLawyer4U solicitors for a free, no obligation discussion.

Average speed cameras to be used to control air pollution

Motorists will face an increase in speeding ticket and police prosecutions for speeding because average speed cameras are to be allowed on a roads and motorways to reduce air pollution.

Experts say that the reduction of traffic speed ensures the smooth flow of traffic on motorways and reduces harmful emissions.

Research from across Europe, including Holland has shown that reducing the speed limit to 50 mph on motorways in built-up areas significantly reduces harmful emissions.

Average speed cameras track vehicles over a set distance rather than measuring the exact speed at a fixed point. They already cover in excess of 250 miles of road in Britain. The shortest average speed camera in the country is a mile long across Tower Bridge in London.

We predict a significant increase in speeding tickets issued as a result of offences captured by average speed cameras not just on motorways but also on A roads.
