Speeding fines triple in South Wales Police area

The number of drivers fined in court for speeding offences in South Wales has tripled, according to new figures from the Ministry of Justice (MoJ).

The force area saw one of the biggest increases in England and Wales with 6,491 fined in 2013, compared to 2,181 three years earlier.

The numbers of Dyfed-Powys and Gwent motorists fined by magistrates doubled.

A speed camera in Cardiff generated more than an estimated £800,000 worth of fines in just six months.

Spokesman for the Institute of Advanced Motorists Tim Shallcross explained why people were getting caught.
