Motorists have fines and points cancelled over £2m speed cameras blunder

4 1 2

Dozens of Norfolk motorists are having speeding fines refunded and penalty points scrubbed after a speed camera blunder.

Drivers who did speed awareness courses are also being refunded due to a temporary traffic order “discrepancy” at roadworks on the A1 in Lincolnshire.

Work on the Grantham southern relief road has seen a 50mph limit imposed with Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership installing temporary speed cameras.

But the error means 19,089 people caught in a five month period are having punishments wiped with Lincolnshire Police refunding £100 speeding fines totalling almost £2 million.
