the new Speeding Fines mean to you
At Swansway Group, we’re always careful to stick to the speed limits, after all they’re in place to help keep all road users safe – drivers, cyclists and pedestrians alike. So we’re happy to hear about the new speeding penalties in England and Wales which took effect on 24th April 2017.
We’ve already given you a guide to the new points and fine system which is designed to be a more relevant deterrent to speeding culprits by imposing punishments suited to the crime, as well as the offender’s personal circumstances.
But what does this really mean to us?
Well, with the UK’s average wage of £27,200, a band A offence would result in 3 penalty points along with a fine of £209, equivalent to a one-night spa sensation break for two at Rookery Hall Hotel.

Don’t forget that if you accrue 12 or more penalty points within 3 years, you’ll face being disqualified from driving, and if you’ve passed your test less than 2 years ago, you’ll lose your licence after 6 points.
Don’t risk losing your licence and your hard earned cash by speeding. Stick to the speed limits and you’ll help to keep you, your passengers and other users safe on the roads.
