Speeding in London continues to rise with 18,000 offences enforced already in 2020


Speeding in the capital continues to be a major concern for road users and authorities as figures show 2020 to already be the highest ever year for offences.


Numbers for those caught speeding and who faced Traffic Police enforcement is already at 18,000, and on course to at least double last year's figures.

In 2019 there were 12,000 recorded speeding offences in London according to data released by Detective Superintendent Andy Cox, lead for Vision Zero, who investigate fatal and serious road collisions and tackle transport network crime across London.

DS Andy Cox has said: "Speeding is the most frequent causation factor present in fatal crashes in London, creating utter devastation for bereaved families left behind.


"We all have a part to play in changing this. Challenge friends, family & yourself not to speed. Be a leader in creating safer roads."


One of the biggest and most concerning rise in speeding offences are those where the driver was caught driving at speeds in excess of 100mph.


In 2019 there were a total of 202 recorded offences. To date, the figure for this year is already at 554.
