Total Motion welcomes tougher speeding fines

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.

Testimonials

John,

Thank you for sourcing us a commercial company vehicle at a price we felt was affordable and competitive along with the added maintenance package.

You are someone we can trust explicitly and whose knowledge of the motor leasing trade second to none, he was able to find a great discount on our vehicle which other leasing companies could not.

The whole buying process was quick and easy and John was able to talk us through the whole process in advance so we knew what to expect.

All in all, John is a great person to work with and we will have no hesitation in referring all future car leasing needs to him.

This is my first time leasing a vehicle and Stuart has been absolutely fantastic in explaining and sourcing the best deal for my first car. Any question I've asked or change that I've asked for (within reason), Stuart has sorted professionally and quickly. The communication via the company is brilliant and the whole ordering process is simple and easy. I'm looking forward to receiving my car and would definitely recommend Total Motion to anyone. Stuart Conway deserves personal recognition from the company for his excellent service.
