A dramatic increase in speeding fines has not deterred one motorist who was caught speeding at 134mph on the A11.
The Norfolk and Suffolk Safety Camera and Central Ticket Office Tweeted to say the person who was driving their car at 64mph over the speed limit near Snetterton this afternoon (Tuesday), would be hearing from them soon.
New sentencing guidelines came into effect on Monday and as a result speeding fines for the most serious cases in England and Wales will rise by up to 50pc after magistrates were instructed to get tougher.
The new fine structure is ranked into three categorised bands, with the least severe being Band A, while the most severe is Band C.
Band C fines are for speeders who commit the most serious offences and carry a minimum fine of 150pc of the offender's weekly income.
