New laws imposing heavier fines for the most serious speeding offences have been welcomed by vehicle management company Total Motion.
Drivers caught at a speed far in excess of the limit will now be hit with a 50% higher fine under Sentencing Council rules, which came into force on April 24.
“Speed limits are in place for very good reasons and drivers who ignore them, particularly at excessive speeds, are putting lives in jeopardy and risking catastrophic accidents,” said Simon Hill, managing director of Total Motion.
“Hopefully these new rules will act as a deterrent and encourage the minority who break the law to follow the example of the majority who drive safely and observe the limit.”
The courts handle speeding fines in three categories, A, B and C, with the new penalty applying only to the more serious C level.
Drivers speeding at 51mph or above in a 30 mph limit will fall into the C category and face a fine equivalent to 150% of their weekly pay. In addition, they will also get six penalty points on their licence or a 56 day driving ban.
Drivers can still be fined a maximum of £1,000, regardless of their weekly earnings, or £2,500 if they are caught speeding on the motorway.
Thank you for sorting out the new van! It drives like a ferrari!
Thank you for professional and efficient service in providing the Porsche Macan exactly as promised, on time and to specification.
Your service was greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much for your exceptional efforts to ensure that I received my car today. I know that it was a tall order but I am very pleased and all went according to plan today.
I know that people often don't seem to appreciate all the work that people put into these things but please believe me when I say that I am very, very grateful.
If you have a manager that you can pass this message on to, please do so - in this day and age people always forget to say when service is good.
Thank you so much.
Peter provided exceptional service and provided me with the Clubman at an amazing price.
I highly recommend Total Motion if you're looking to lease a vehicle at a great price. A very friendly team that were always happy to help me find the perfect solution.
Thanks a lot!
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your assistance over the last few years and in particular in dealing with the sourcing of my most recent car.
Having dealt with you to source my previous 2 cars, going back to 2010, I was well aware of your high level of customer care and attention to detail which is very important to me.
During the period of my previous lease, you also regularly monitored my situation, and I therefore had no hesitation to use you to provide my replacement car.
Once again, the service and support you provided was first class, and at all times I was kept informed as to the progress of my order, and also advised regarding the return of my existing car, although this wasn’t actually part of your responsibilities.
I have in the past recommended you to both colleagues and clients, and I will continue to do so based upon your ongoing excellent service and the feedback I also get from others.
Thank you for managing to find a physical car with the exact specifications my wife wanted, something no other company could achieve. Also, for having patience with a very awkward and hard to please customer! Can't recommend this company highly enough! Fantastic from beginning to end.
The whole process was simple and smooth from start to finish, Kieran answered all my questions and left no stone unturned.
Just a THANK YOU!
Truck delivered all as promised, communication excellent.
Thank you so much for organising a car for my fastidious neighbour and dealing with him in such a professional and patient manner- he was really impressed!
I also want to thank you for the professional and friendly way you have dealt with the contract for my own car which is due for delivery shortly.
I dealt with Kieran , who was very helpful , answered all my questions and made the process a smooth one!
