Speedy commute

A FLEET driver clocked up more than 30 points on his driving licence in one week as he travelled to and from work.

The driver passed a speed camera in roadworks at more than the 40mph limit and, because it didn’t flash, thought it wasn’t working. He repeated the journey at least once a day for a full week before penalty notices started arriving.

His fleet manager, who asked not to be named, said: ‘He is appealing against the points because he thought cameras are supposed to flash. But it was a digital camera and caught him every time he sped past it.’
