The Ministry of Justices figures (2015) revealed over 54,000 convictions in Yorkshire for Road Traffic Offences in 2015 a rise of over 15,000 offences since 2013. Speeding convictions rose from 9,897 offences in 2013 to 18,228 offences in 2015. In North Yorkshire in particular, the number of offences rose from 5,500 to 8,000 with the biggest leap in offences of speeding, from 1780 to 4144 - largely as a result of the introduction of the mobile speed camera vans that are now a feature of North Yorkshire driving.
Around the country drivers prosecuted for motoring offences (2017 figures) increased by 3% with over 168,000 people convicted of speeding - that's equivalent to the population of a town like
Harrogate all with penalty points on their licence, and the increased risk of disqualification.
There are many different motoring offences , the majority of which result in licence endorsement. In today's busy world many people are heavily dependent on their driving licence not least to perform their job such that a driving diqualification could result in catastrophic personal financial consequences.
