The government has announced new plans to increase fines for some motoring offences. Shockingly this includes a massive maximum fine of £10,000 for speeding on the UK’s motorways.

A BBC news report gives the details of the increases:

“The Level 1 fine maximum increase from £200 to £800. Offences which may be dealt with by a Level 1 fine include unauthorised cycle racing on public ways.

Level 2 increases from £500 to £2,000. Offences include driving a motor cycle without a protective helmet.

Level 3 increases from £1,000 to £4,000. Offences include the sale of alcohol to a drunk person or being drunk and disorderly in a public place.

Level 4 increases from £2,500 to £10,000. Offences include speeding on the motorway.”

These increases are being introduced as a deterrent and an effort to make the UK’s roads safer for the vast majority of law-abiding drivers.
