Road Safety Speeding

Speeding is a serious offence and when drivers are caught as a minimum are given £100 fine and 3 penalty points on their licence.

As new drivers, you should avoid at any cost getting points on your licence as if it is within the first 2 years of you driving and you gain 6 points or more, your licence will be taken away from you.

There are 2 ways that you can be caught for speeding. The first is with a camera and usually, within 2 weeks of the offence you will be sent a notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP) You must return the notice within 28 days, telling the police who was driving the car. Another way you can be caught is by police officers they can either give you a verbal warning, give or send you an FP or order you to go to court – you’ll be sent a letter telling you what to do.

Speeding has many consequences not only gives you fines and points it also risks the lives of other road users, so please keep an eye on your speed.

Safe driving from Britannia!
