Speeding - The limits

All UK forces abide by national guidelines regarding the speed thresholds for enforcement.

These figures are published by Hertfordshire Police, but certainly South Wales and other local forces comply with the same, even if they don't openly circulate the fact.

The threshold for all enforcement is 10% + 2mph. Then up to 10% + 9mph gets you a National Speed Awareness Course. Up to 10% + 21mph means a Fixed Penalty Notice (or RIDE where available).  10% + 22mph and over earns you a trip to the magistrates (Report For Summons).


30mph limit >> 35 - 42 = NSAC, 43 - 54 = FPN, 55+ = RFS
40mph limit >> 46 - 53 = NSAC, 54 - 64 = FPN, 65+ = RFS
50mph limit >> 57 - 64 = NSAC, 65 - 74 = FPN, 75+ = RFS
60mph limit >> 68 - 75 = NSAC, 76 - 84 = FPN, 85+ = RFS
70mph limit >> 79 - 86 = NSAC, 87 - 94 = FPN, 95+ = RFS
