Speed Camera Chief Banned for Speeding

The chief executive of a speed camera firm has been banned from driving for six months after admitting speeding at more than 100mph on a 70mph road.

Tom Riall is the boss of Serco, which has provided more than 5,000 speed cameras in the UK.

Mr Riall appeared at Sudbury Magistrates’ Court and pleaded guilty to driving at 100mph, he was fined £300, banned from driving for six months and had six points added to his licence.

Outside court, he said: “I accept the decision of the court. I recognise that speeding is not acceptable”

Simon Bush of Britannia Driving School said: “It’s unacceptable for the boss of a company that prides itself on providing “robust evidence of drivers speeding” to be caught speeding at 100mph on a dual carriageway; it’s a case of the gamekeeper becoming the poacher.”
