    We're all Screwed again, But only if you like speeding!!!!

    Anyone seen todays papers?

    The Government are looking to increase the fines for speeding.

    But on the other hand anything up to 10mph over the limit will only get you a fine and a visit to the local councelling office for irresponsible driving.

    Over that expect the fine and points.

    What are your thoughts? Good? Bad? Same?
    Be an optimist - at least until they start moving animals in pairs to Cape Canaveral.

    Haven't seen this anywhere today in the news I see (local, BBC and The Times). Did a quick search and the only place that is reporting this is the Daily Mail...

    Lets just say, it won't be putting me off buying a faster car in 2011

    But I would rather pay up to hundreds of pounds for a fine than receive points for speeding.

    I can not see the point in not giving people points for speeding upto 10mph above the speed limit.

    IMHO I think more people will do it as all that will happen is a fine and a clean licence which means more people will be speeding and less people being banned/given points

    Adding a bigger fine to points makes sense then my discourge people doing it

    That's probably exactly what they are trying to do, allowing more people to break the speed limit and it becoming a massive cash cow for them.

    I can see groups kicking off though saying that it does discourage people to truly stay below the speed limit as you say.

    hmmm sounds funky.
    I know alot of people are being offered this driving awareness course instead of points atm, you pay your fine and for the course I think.
    Does sound like a cash flow scheme.
