The first person to be convicted of speeding in the UK was Walter Arnold of East Peckham, Kent, who on 28 January 1896 was fined for speeding at 8 mph, thus exceeding the contemporary speed limit of 2 mph. He was fined one shilling, (£0.05), plus costs.

The minimum penalty for speeding is a £100 fine and 3 penalty points added to your driving licence.

If you get caught speeding, you will receive a letter in the post informing you of the fact. In some cases, you will be able to choose from three options, (1) paying the fine and taking the points, (2) going to court to get fined and penalty points, or (3) taking a speed awareness course if it is your first speeding offence or if you haven’t previously been caught in the past three years. The speed awareness course is not free, and usually costs the same as the fine, but you do not get penalty points, instead, you lose half a day from your life. There is also a limit to how much you can break the speed limit by, if your speeding is excessive, you will be given penalty points and a fine, as well as a possible court summons, without the choice of a speed awareness course.

It is your responsibility to be aware of the signs and road conditions and to drive responsibly and in all circumstances within the prescribed maximum speed, but knowing where the speed traps are on a day to day basis can't do any harm.
