Speed Enforcement Guidelines

Question

Can you please tell me at what speed over the limit your force applies the following enforcements:

Fixed penalty notice

Speed awareness course

Summons to court

If this is not calculated as a percentage of the limits, please give examples for the speeds at which you would apply them at 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 and 70mph.

Answer

We enforce all speed limits at NPCC (ACPO) guidelines which is 10% + 2mph of the posted speed limit: i.e. in a 30mph enforcement would start at 35mph and so on.

Education is offered from 10%+2mph to 10%+9mph of the posted limit i.e. in a 30mph limit it would be 35 – 42mph and so on.

Fixed Penalties and summons are offered as follows:

Limit       Fixed Penalty        Summons

   20       32 - 39 mph            40mph +

   30       43 – 49 mph           50mph +

   40       54 – 65 mph           66mph +

   50       65 – 75 mph           76mph +

   60       76 – 85 mph           86mph +

   70       87 – 95 mph           96mph +
