Fines change from £60 to £100

As from 16 August 2013 the fines changed for careless drivers who put other road users at risk by committing offences such as tailgating or poor lane discipline will face on-the-spot penalties.

The changes give the police greater flexibility in dealing with less serious careless driving offences, freeing them from resource-intensive court processes.

Existing fixed penalty levels for most motoring offences – including using a mobile phone at the wheel and not wearing a seat-belt – rise to £100, bringing them into line with penalties for similar non-motoring fixed penalties.
