Fines drop may be due to fewer cars on the road

FN50 leasing companies handled significantly fewer fines and penalties this year, as the coronavirus pandemic resulted in reduced car use and relaxed restrictions.

The headline figure shows a reported 499,191 fines and penalties were received by FN50 leasing companies in the last year, a drop of around 150,000 compared with 2019’s figure.

Just under half of the total number of FN50 respondents supplied data in relation to the number of penalties processed this year, (slightly fewer than 2019), but half of the top 10 did, including the UK’s biggest, Lex Autolease, so the sample size is comprehensive.
