The numerous forms of speed detection available to the police and the varying speed limits in the UK make it is very easy for motorists to have trouble with speeding offences. Common speed cameras and in-car devices like the speedometer or time devices like VASCAR are amongst the many forms of speed detection.
Fines for speeding offences can be as high as £2,500 including 3-6 penalty points or you can also be disqualified from driving. This disqualification can range from between 7 and 56 days or even longer. However if the offence is committed by a driver with a particularly bad record then the magistrates may increase the period of disqualification.

What are the ways you can be notified of a speeding offence?
• You can receive a Notice of Intended Prosecution or ‘NIP’ in the post.
• You can be stopped by the police and may receive a fixed penalty (speeding ticket) or be informed that you will need to report to court for a summons.
Speed cameras seem to be around every corner making speeding a common offence. However, it is vital that you take immediate and correct action so a conviction can be avoided. It is highly advisable to contact a speeding offence solicitor at the earliest opportunity. If you do find yourself facing a fine a solicitor will be able to assist you in either minimizing a sentence imposed or challenging an allegation of speeding.
