Transport for London is reportedly set to target one million speeding fines a year, up from the 623,000 prosecutions that have taken place between 2020 and 2021.
London’s Evening Standard quotes Simon Ovens, chief superintendent at the Met’s roads and transport policing command, who said TfL has “a clear position to get to a target of one million prosecutions a year for speeding.”
It says he was speaking at a London Assembly transport committee meeting where he commented that an additional 564 Police Community Support Officers will monitor speeding limits between 6am and 10pm.
TfL is planning to increase fines for contravention of red route rules from £130 to £160.
