The stats are horrible: in the 4 years up to 2007, nearly a quarter of drivers in Britain had been penalised for speeding. At least £500million was paid out in fines by around 7million drivers who were caught speeding. And around 1million who broke the speed limit have notched up more than one conviction.

A total of 13.4million endorsements involving 11.2million drivers were recorded, according to the figures which were released after a Freedom of Information request. More
