Speeding concerns

speeding carWhether you walk, cycle or drive, we want everyone to be able to use our roads safely.

Whilst there's no such thing as the perfect driver, there's a difference between making a small mistake and driving dangerously which puts others at risk. Reporting speeding can help make our roads safer for all road users.

Speed limits are set for a reason and exceeding them is illegal. The minimum penalty for speeding is £100 and three points added to your licence.

If you accumulate 12 or more penalty points on your licence the Magistrates will automatically consider disqualifying you from driving.

If you’re a newly qualified driver and receive six points during the first two years after passing your test, your licence will automatically be cancelled (revoked).

To report a location where speeding is causing concern please complete the form online at Speed Concern Submission. – Lancashire Road Safety Partnership (lancsroadsafety.co.uk).

Please complete the form with as much detail as possible. All reports of excess speed are reviewed to determine the most appropriate response but if we require further information, we may need to contact you.

We share your concerns about motorists who do not use our roads in the safe, responsible and considerate way we expect from everyone. The information you provide will help us to identify areas to target to reduce casualties and improve the quality of life for people who live and travel in Lancashire.

If you have any dashcam footage you would like to submit, Op Snap will investigate offences such as Dangerous Driving, Careless Driving and other offences where the driver is clearly not in proper control of the vehicle. For further information please visit our Op Snap page.
