“The local authority, which is responsible for road safety, should be looking at those figures and saying ‘we seem to have an issue here - the camera is catching a lot of people’.

“Let's make sure that it looks like a 30mph highway, and that the cameras are clearly visible and the signs aren't obscured by vegetation.” A Government spokesman said: “Speeding can have devastating consequences and it’s right that drivers should abide by the speed limit.

Currently, the maximum fines are £1,000 for speeding on a dual carriageway or using a mobile phone at the wheel and £2,500 for exceeding the 70mph limit on a motorway.If your basket qualifies for a Buy Now, Pay Later plan, there’s nothing to pay for the length of the plan.Avoid any interest if you pay off the plan in full before it ends and keep your account up to date.In Essex, the number of speeding fines issued by the courts rose by 44 per cent last year, while in Avon and Somerset the number increased by 34 per cent.
