New figures release show that more than 1,000 drivers a week are being issued tickets after being caught on roads that have variable speed limits depending on the volume of traffic. Some 52,516 fixed penalty notices were issued on 11 smart motorways throughout the UK – including parts of the M1, M25, M4, M6 and M42 – in 2014-15.
This is compared with just 2,023 fines issued on the same sections of road in 2010/11, a date before smart motorways were introduced.
The figures going to central government from fines on those stretches of motorway in the 12 months has increased to more than £1.1m, from just £150,600 five years ago.
