Speeding Ticket 'Fines' Rise to £500 Plus

Tue, 11 Feb 2003
The massive proliferation of speed cameras planned thoroughout the UK mean that not only will almost every driver in the country be forced to pay a £60 fine, they will go on paying for a further five years.

The reason is that insurers which used to turn a blind eye to a single SP30, now hit policyholders with premium rises of up to £100 for each 'conviction'. Since these must be declared for five years, the total cost of one tiny trangression can be as much as £560.
