Calls have been made for greater enforcement to reduce excessive speeding on motorways rather than increasing fines.
Maximum fines imposed by magistrates in England and Wales are set to rise sharply in an effort to crack down on offenders.
The government’s proposals could see the highest fine for speeding on the motorway increase from £2,500 to £10,000.
But it has been argued that the current maximum fine is already a strong enough deterrent for the majority of drivers.
This comes after stealth cameras being introduced on the motorways in order to prevent speeding.
