Motorists face speeding ‘postcode lottery’

11.12 | 19 December 2009 | | 1 comment

New research highlights a ‘postcode lottery’ of motoring prosecutions, according to a report in The Telegraph.

The figures, obtained by Auto Express magazine, show huge disparities in the way police forces enforce road laws.

The report says motorists in some regions of Britain are 12 times more likely to receive speeding fines and points than in other areas. One in eight drivers in North Wales have been caught speeding and received points compared to one in 100 in Durham.

Motorists in Northamptonshire face the toughest crackdown on all offences – with one in six of cars in the region being caught speeding, running red lights, using a mobile phone or driving uninsured.

    Simple – don’t break the law and you won’t be part of this postcode lottery.
