Many motorists caught speeding simply don’t know how to challenge their penalty, according to a survey from Saga Motor Insurance.
The insurer looked at several different kinds of driving offences, and found that while many people believe they were unfairly charged with an offence, a large percentage do not challenge their tickets.
Two in five of all motorists do not complain, even if they feel unfairly treated – women primarily do not know how, whereas men most commonly want to avoid incurring any further costs.
However, with 9% of women over the age of 50 and 16% of men of the same age feeling their speeding fine was wrongly imposed, many could be missing out on the opportunity to successfully defend their case.
