One in four London cars fined for 20mph speeding offences amid 700% surge in tickets issued

The equivalent of one in every four cars registered in London have been slapped with speeding fines for exceeding 20mph in the past six years, new figures reveal.

Some 595,000 tickets have been issued by the Metropolitan Police since 2018, which is 85 per cent of the 700,000 fines handed out over the same time period across the whole of Britain.

This was revealed by a Freedom of Information (FOI) request made by The Times, which found that the Met has increased the number of tickets issued for 20mph offences by 700 per cent since 2018.

Last year, people driving between 20mph and 30mph were fined eight times more than those driving above 60mph.

It comes after London Mayor Sadiq Khan lowered speed limits on multiple main roads across the capital.

Recent years have seen Mr Khan prioritise making the city “safer and greener”, by encouraging more walking and cycling over driving.

He has asked the Met to ensure it has the capacity to enforce up to one million speeding fines by next year.

The Mayor of London’s Commissioner for walking and cycling, Will Norman, told The Times: “Lowering speeds is one of the most important things we can do to reduce road danger.
