200 drivers caught every day by each of the new Birmingham speed cameras
It’s been revealed that more than 200 drivers have been caught each day by each of the new average speed cameras in Birmingham.
The eight sites were activated in August – and in the days until September 16 the cameras caught 7,915 people driving too quickly.
23,745 – Number of penalty points issued to offending drivers.
7,915 – Number of drivers caught driving too quickly.
If all received the minimum £100 fine, then already almost £800,000 will be received by the authorities, with at least 23,745 penalty points issued to offending drivers.
Some drivers may have been caught multiple times – unaware that the cameras have now been switched on.
Those who exceed the limit will have to attend a speed awareness course where they will be educated about the dangers of speeding or face either an appearance at court or a fine and points on their licence.
