Cases involving speeding were the types of motoring offence that resulted in the most convictions in 2014 - reports ADINews

Out of 512,043 successful prosecutions for all motoring offences in 2014, 148,426 were for speeding, which represents an increase of 28% from 115,935 the previous year. 

Next opn the list was vehicle insurance-related crimes with some 118,254 people found guilty in court of this, which is 7% up on 2013.

The figures, obtained by the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) from the MoJ, also showed that vehicle registration and excise duty offences and driving with alcohol in the blood above the legal limit are both offences that have fallen in huge numbers in the past ten years.

Sarah Sillars, IAM chief executive officer, said: “We can see from these figures that as the UK comes out of recession traffic levels have risen, speeding appears to be becoming more prevalent and regrettably casualties are rising again. The government and police forces cannot afford to take their eye off the ball and more visible policing is, in our view, the key way to ensure that people don’t think they can get away with speeding.”

 

The top five offences where offenders are found guilty in court are:

 

1. Speed limit offences - 146,426

2. Vehicle insurance offences - 118,254
