Fines for speeding could rise from £60 to £100 under plans announced by Justice Secretary Kenneth Clarke.
The fixed penalty speeding fine could rise by nearly 70% to fund compensation for victims of crime.
Those who fight speeding cases in court could pay up to £120 towards the scheme. The proposals are part of plans to raise an extra £50million a year for victim compensation.
Clarke said: “Victims in this country must be able to rely on a justice system which punishes offenders properly and ensures that victims who suffer serious consequences are properly helped and supported.
“Cash compensation should be better focused on blameless victims of the most serious crimes and more support for victims should be funded by offenders rather than taxpayers.”
Andrew Howard, the AA’s head of road safety, said: “Many take the view that enforcing motoring law is about raising money and this reinforces that view

Yet another way/plan to get money out of us!

If they spent tax payers money properly they would be no need to try raise this £50million, They bailed out two banks over the past year or two and that cost more than 50mil and I still don't see a change n the banking system!

I give up with this so called 'GOVERNMENT'- There the biggest business around and have a monopoly!


PS: FOOK THE SYSTEM! :mad:

LOL RANT OVER!

Thats not even the point, this is just another way to get more money out of people, what was wrong with charging people £60. Because it goes to a £100 I doubt it will change peoples minds

Eh.
An extra £40...

To be fair....
If I DO get caught speeding... chances are it won't be £100 fine I am facing. It will more likely be a much larger sum / jail time.

Or rather a loss of lisnce.

In fact... it is the loss of license that scares me more than anything.
If they lowered the required speed to loose your license, then I would think twice before speeding...

I swear. If they DO do that. Then I shall just get myself a Hayabusa turbo, and ride around with no numberplate. And I just wont get caught ;)

After 21 years of motoring and having owned stuff from an old mini clubman to a Lotus Elise, I've still never been nicked. Its not really that hard to avoid the speeding tax!

Like I said, I personally dont care about price increase, it isn't going to affect me or people I know of much. The worrying matter getting caught by speeding is getting points!!! I have had my drivers licence for a year now and if you get 6points within two years you loose it!!! :(

HALFWAY THERE THOUGH :D AND IM STILL CLEAR!

It's 2 years AFTER you pass your first full test. Also under the new drivers act of 2007 you can have 6 points on your provisional and still pass a test legally

HUH!?? What you on about lol.

I have a FULL DRIVING licence. I passed this time last year, So I have obtained it for 1 year. WITHIN the FIRST two years of passing if you get 6 points your licence gets revoked.

In general terms if someone gets 12 points on their licence you have to apply for it again, hence new drivers have already 6 points pre-loaded on their licence and getting another 6 in two years you can say bye bye to it.
