In 2018, under free-flowing traffic conditions, 46% of cars exceeded the speed limit on motorways compared to 52% on 30mph roads and 10% on 60mph roads. The percentage of vehicles complying with the speed limits on free flow roads was higher on weekdays than on weekends.
However, during more recent times, throughout the COVID-19 lockdown, speeding figures went up. New data showed that speeding incidents tripled despite fewer cars on the road and less miles being driven. The Metropolitan Police has seen speeding become its biggest road safety challenge in London. The average speed of drivers in all speed zones has increase and the Metropolitan Police have launched a ‘road crimes team’ in London, as behaviour worsens.
