Motoring groups warn over plan to penalise speeders 1mph over the limit

Chief Constable Anthony Bangham, roads policing lead for the National Police Chiefs' Council (NPCC), has called for an end to officers allowing a 10% buffer over the signposted limit.

"Whilst I fully agree that we need to have an effective speed enforcement policy, we have moved on from the days of random speed traps being put in place to pick off easy targets and now work in partnership with Local Authorities to target specific locations supported by accident data".

Drivers should be punished even if they only exceed the speed limit by 1mph, the policing chief for Britain's roads has reportedly said.

Motorists could soon face fines for going just 1mph over the speed limit.

Existing guidance suggests police forces should only issue penalties for drivers caught at 10 per cent plus 2mph over the limit - 35mph in a 30mph zone as an example. And, of course, there's the old argument that police should "focus on real criminals" rather than strict speed enforcement.

"On top of that he has said that "Speed Awareness Courses" used across the United Kingdom should be scaled back and motorists instead should face prosecution". A lot of drivers freely admit to breaking the speed limits on a daily basis, and are pretty empathetic about the prospect of an appointment with the constabulary. When the Daily Mail incorrectly reported that Bangham had called for strict enforcement of even driving 1 miles per hour over the limit, he backpedaled on his stance a bit.

He said: "Let's change the message - we are proud to be law enforcers".

Rod King, founder of the 20's Plenty for Us group, which campaigns to set speed limits of 20mph in built-up areas, added: "Where society sets speed limits, you should abide by them". The prospect of losing access to a vital part of life for a handful of minor offences would seem draconian to the majority.

"The police rely in many cases to solve crimes on the good will of the public".

He told delegates at the Police Federation's annual roads policing conference in Hinckley, Leicestershire, that police spend too much time trying to justify speeding tickets and being "patient" with speeders.

He said: "No decisions were taken but we did consider options for how to reduce speeding. We want drivers to concentrate on road ahead and not be anxious about going one or two miles over the limit". But surely it is better to educate motorists rater than just slap a fine on them.

"I want West Mercia Police to do everything possible to protect people using our roads and lead the way in ensuring enforcement activity".

He called for ministerial backing for a zero tolerance approach to speeding.
