Speed camera on A40 in Greenford captures the most number of speeding drivers in the UK

A speed camera on the A40 going eastbound from Greenford captures the most amount of speeding motorists in the UK.

In just 12 months, the camera situated between Long Drive and Welland Gardens caught 49,050 drivers speeding. This was more than double the next camera located in Surrey.

In a Freedom of Information request, price comparison service Confused.com obtained data from 36 of the 46 forces across the UK.

Over 1.74 million speeding offences were captured by cameras across the UK, with drivers having to pay out £45.7 million for their driving offences.

Car insurance expert, Alex Kindred, at Confused.com, said: “A worrying number of drivers are being caught on the roads for speeding, whether it be by Gatso cameras or other speed cameras. Our research shows that nearly half of drivers (44%) have had a fine for speeding in the past. Although some motorists might feel that speed limits are an inconvenience, they’re there to ensure our roads are safe for all.”

He added: “If caught speeding, motorists could land themselves with a fine, points on their licence or even a driving ban. In some cases, drivers could attend a speed awareness course instead, but the punishment depends on the seriousness of the offence. A speeding fine or points added on to your licence could also lead to an increase on your car insurance costs.”
