Do You Have to Pay?
In some circumstances, you might have a legitimate reason not to pay a speeding fine.
It’s a bit sneaky, but the last time I needed legal advice, I paid £5 for a trial to chat with an online solicitor called JustAnswer.
Not only did I save £50 on solicitor fees, I also won my case and didn’t have to pay my £271 fine.

What are the cost implications of speeding?
As you may be aware, you can choose to plead guilty or not guilty if you receive a Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN). Each of these options will have different financial consequences.
If you plead guilty, you will need to pay a £100 fine.
If you plead not guilty, you will need to go to court. You can get fined more than £100 if the court concludes that you are guilty of speeding.
The court fine will depend on how fast you were going over the speed limit. This fine will be determined as a percentage of your weekly income but is capped at £1,000 or £2,500 if you were driving on the motorway.

What is the point of speed cameras?
But what is the actual point of speed cameras, anyway?
Research and road safety statistics have shown that there is evidence that speed cameras reduce road speeds.
The presence of speed cameras puts drivers off driving at unsafe or excessive speeds. This, in turn, is part of a host of road safety initiatives that help protect the general public.
For stationary speed cameras, drivers know when the camera is pointing at them so they can adjust their speed appropriately. But what about mobile cameras?
Well, the uncertainty of a mobile camera means that drivers are more inclined to respect the speed limits on any given road because they don’t know when one will appear.
