Drivers were left almost £250 million out of pocket last year after speed cameras snared a record number of motorists.

New police figures show 2.8 million fixed penalty notices were sent to drivers caught on camera, an average of more than 7,600 every day – or one every 11 seconds.

That’s up 20 per cent on the figure for 2020, when lockdown reduced traffic flow, and up 17 per cent on 2019 figures.

The news follows separate research which found the most prolific speed camera in the UK – on the A40 in West London – caught 49,050 speeding cars in a year.

Of those snared nationwide in 2021, a record 813,000 were given £100 fines, with 1.2 million motorists avoiding a fine and penalty points by taking a speed awareness course, also costing them about £100 a time.
