Land Rover driver who went 56mph in 30mph on A44 Broadwas is fined

A Land Rover driver was recently handed a hefty fine for driving 56mph in a 30mph zone on the A44 in Broadwas, Worcestershire.

The driver, who remains unnamed, was stopped by a police patrol near the Broadwas roundabout on the A44, and was found to be driving well in excess of the speed limit.

The individual was issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice, which carries a fine of up to £100 and three points on the driver’s license.

The police also issued a warning to other drivers to be aware of speed limits and to adhere to them to ensure the safety of both themselves and other road users.

In a statement, the Worcestershire Safer Roads Partnership said:

“The A44 is a major route in and out of the county and it is important that drivers are aware of the speed limit and obey it. Exceeding the speed limit can have serious consequences and we would encourage everyone to think about their speed and the safety of other users.”

The driver was also reminded that if they had been caught speeding by a speed camera, the fine and points issued would have been far higher.

The Worcestershire Safer Roads Partnership warned that any driver caught exceeding the speed limit could face fines, points on their license, a driving ban, and in some cases even a custodial sentence.

This incident serves as a reminder to all road users to adhere to the speed limit at all times, in order to ensure their own safety and that of other motorists.
