Speeding on the rise in the UK

2 November, 2017

According to figures released from the Home Office, a driver was caught speeding every 15 seconds in England and Wales last year.

A total of 1.97 million fixed penalty notices issued for speed limit offences were issued in 2016, an increase of 25,000 compared to 2015. Avon and Somerset took the crown for the speeding hotspot of Britain, with 95 speeding tickets per 1,000 people.

With speeding becoming an increasing issue, fleet managers must ensure that their fleets are complying with the law, maintaining high safety standards and not running up unnecessary costs.

With a Mobile Resource Management (MRM) system, fleet managers are provided with near real-time visibility across all their fleet vehicles in order to manage compliance and improve driver behaviour.

These tools have become critical for modern fleets to ensure safety across the organisation, and can offer in vehicle coaching, or even facilitate gamification to incentivise drivers to improve their safety.
