A Fine Proposal


A Fine ProposalThe government has proposed raising the fine for a fixed penalty notice from £60 to £90 in its "Strategic Framework for Road Safety". However, there is an opportunity for the public to voice their opinion.

The proposals suggest making careless driving a fixed penalty notice (FPN) offence and increasing the penalty levels for some motoring FPN offences. The aim is to make the enforcement process more efficient, ensure that penalties are set at the right levels and make educational training more widely available.

So that means raising the fine for a fixed-penalty notice (which you get for offences such as speeding, using a hand held mobile phone whilst driving and passing red traffic lights) to £90, but also offering those committing less serious offences the choice of either accepting the FPN (i.e. receive penalty points and a financial penalty) or attending remedial training (this would not result in endorsements on a licence).

Transport Minister Mike Penning told Parliament that a lot of the penalties had not increased since 2000 so had, in effect, been gradually reducing.
