As usual, the motorist is fleeced - 35mph in a 30 zone, come on TVP have you nothing better to do.

However, 82mph in a 50 zone, you should be banged to rights...

Some of these should have got a ticket and/or the speed awareness course - which actually makes money for TVP.

Perhaps they opted for their day in court, rarely a smart move whether or not you think you are in the right.

such inconsistencies in fines for the speeders and as for 32mph over the limit, that should be a ban.

Aren't the fines based on your ability to pay them? Never understand why so many appeal and go to court. Would be interesting to know the percentage who have it overturned and what their legal arguement is.

The 82 mph (64% over the limit) was on the M40 (presumably in a temporary road works section) where there may or may not have been much traffic about or actual risk.

The 55 mph was in a 30 mph zone (83% over the limit) on the A329 through Pangbourne, with much greater risk to pedestrians etc.

I would thought that the relative seriousness of these offences was about right.

As per usual it's the motorist that's the easy target.

Meanwhile the muggings, drug dealing, burglaries, and other crimes go undetected while the boys in blue hide behind bushes and in their vans with their radar guns or at their desks at the station catching up on speeding related paperwork.
