Given an increasing number of speed cameras and traffic patrols in Edinburgh, Livingston, East Lothian, West Lothian and the Borders an increasing number of people living and working in these areas, and Scotland in general, are being caught speeding.

The fixed penalty is a maximum fine of £60 with three to six penalty points’ endorsement on the driver’s licence. However, if the case is referred to a court such as Edinburgh Sheriff Court, the maximum fine possible is £1,000 and may rise to £2,500 if the speeding occurred on a motorway.

Depending on the severity of the allegation and the circumstances, the fine or penalty may increase. However, even if a prosecution is successful, pleas in mitigation by an Edinburgh road traffic lawyer, for instance by bringing to light the accused driver’s past records, may reduce the sentence. This may be particularly significant if the penalty points would result in a driving ban.
