Police and Crime Commissioner, Jason Ablewhite has welcomed new speeding fines for excessive speeding. Under new guidelines, fines for drivers caught doing 51mph in a 30mph zone or 101mph on a motorway will start from 150% of weekly income, rather than the previous level of 100%. Police and Crime Commissioner Jason Ablewhite said: “Every death or life changing injury which happens as a result of speeding is one too many. These incidents have devastating consequences for the victims and their friends and families, and the community. I am fully supportive of the new fines.”
There have been a spate of vehicle break-ins, largely due to vehicles being left unlocked by the owner. The offenders are wandering around and trying the handles to cars. vans etc, and get lucky when a door opens. Don't be a victim it only takes a minute to check you have locked your vehicle.
