Speeding Offences – Speeding Tickets Explained

From learning to drive to eventually passing your driving test you need to be aware of your speed. Speeding tickets, or fixed penalty notices are generally issued for speeding offences where the excess speed recorded is fairly low.

If you receive a speeding ticket you have to decide whether to accept the fixed penalty or challenge it in court. If you would like some advice on what to do if you have received a speeding ticket, contact our speeding offence solicitors on 0800 046 3066

The APCO guidelines for speeding set out the minimum figures at which a Fixed Penalty Notice/Speeding ticket and a Court Summons would normally be considered appropriate for a speeding offence, if there are no other aggravating circumstances. The minimum figure for a speeding ticket is the posted limited +10% + 2 mph.

If the speeding ticket is not accepted or you consider there is some defect in process please contact us for advice. If you opt not to accept the speeding ticket then a court summons will be issued. In certain cases, particularly if a driver has already amassed nine points on a drivers’ licence, a speeding ticket cannot be issued. Again, if caught speeding, and the excess speed over the statutory speed limit is more than 30 mph, a speeding ticket would be inappropriate.

If you have already received a summons, or are unsure whether to accept a speeding ticket, call now and speak to one of our solicitors on 0800 0463066. We have offices in Nottingham but offer a Nationwide Service.
