Seven out of 10 cars, nine out of 10 lorries break speed limits

This follows AA Fleet Services' recent shocking statistics that companies could save up to £250,000 a year in fuel if all its drivers stuck to national speed limits. The AA report stated that for every 10 miles travelled by the average 1.8-litre higher performance saloon fleet car at well over the speed limit, its fuel bill increased by 21p. A 1.3-litre car squanders 20p over 10 miles. Heavy braking for slower traffic and then steadily accelerating back over the speed limit adds to the drain on fuel, costing fleets hundreds of pounds.
