70 speeding tickets issued by police in city centre crackdown

6:40am Tuesday 26th August 2014

POLICE issued 70 speeding tickets on Wednesday as part of a crackdown in 20mph zones.

Motorists on St Giles were targeted by Thames Valley Police’s road policing team during the morning operation.

In June it was announced that motorists flouting the 20mph speed limits by as little as 4mph would face a £100 fine and three points on their licence or a £95 speed awareness course as an alternative.

Previously, police only fined motorists doing 32mph or more in a 20mph zone because a speed awareness course for those breaking the lower limit was not available.
