According to data received under a freedom of information request by insurer LV, the number of speeding motorists eventually ending up in court increased in 2102 by 10%. On the flip side, fixed penalty notices for speeding actually reduced by 6%.

During this period, almost half a million fixed penalty notices and 48,000 court summons were issued. 30 million in fines were consequently handed out for speeding.

Court summons are issued in cases of serious speeding offences. The Association of Chief Police Officers state that a motorway driver caught driving at 80mph would receive a fixed penalty notice but if the were caught at 96mph they would have to attend court.

According to ACPO research, they say that almost one in six drivers caught speeding were driving in excess of 25 mph over the limit.

It is also reported that 62% of Britain's drivers who were caught speeding said it was by fixed speed cameras, 22% by mobile cameras and 10% by police without a camera.

14% drivers said they avoid getting caught by remembering where police patrols operate in their local area, but 16% prefer to be surer and use their satnav to detect speed cameras.

How can we get the 2013 stats yet? We are only half way thought the year Rolling Eyes , so the 2012 stats will be the most recent yearly stats available.
