Foreign motorists will escape speeding fines
Thousands of foreign motorists are set to avoid speeding fines, while British drivers face being pursued for the same offences committed overseas, according to a report in The Telegraph.
The discrepancy has arisen from a new Europe-wide treaty, which came into force on 1 October and enables countries to pursue motorists for fines for speeding offences abroad.
But the slump in sterling means that overseas drivers caught speeding in Britain will fall below the 70 Euro threshold set by the treaty.
Only fines above this amount will be pursued under the treaty, which is intended to make it easier for action to be taken for minor motoring and public order offences.
