Foreign drivers evade £10m UK speeding fines

Foreign drivers get away with not paying 180,000 speeding and parking fines every year because British authorities cannot trace them.

The Sunday Telegraph used the Freedom of Information Act to obtain speeding ticket figures from 15 police forces. They showed that foreign drivers in those areas fail to pay 27,000 speeding fines annually - pointing to a nationwide total of about 80,000 unpaid speeding fines a year.
