More than 6,400 drivers race on A23 roadworks

The Argus: Thousands of motorists are ignoring speed limits at roadworks on the A23 Thousands of motorists are ignoring speed limits at roadworks on the A23

A motorist travelling at more than twice the speed limit was among more than 6,400 drivers caught racing through major roadworks in just three months.

Thousands of motorists have been caught exceeding the 40mph limit on the A23 between Handcross and Warninglid since engineering work started in October.

One driver was caught travelling at 90mph along the two and half mile stretch late at night in December.

So far, misbehaving motorists have paid 947 fines at a cost of more than £56,000, with all income raised going to the Treasury.

Hundreds more will be issued with their fines once paperwork and checks have been completed to ensure that the right people are being punished.

At the current rate, more than £1million of fines could be collected during the duration of the works, which are scheduled to end in autumn 2014.

There have also been 492 motorists who have attended speed awareness courses, with more than a thousand in the process of being booked in for their course.

Worst offenders

Most motorists caught travelling at between 46mph and 53mph are offered a speed awareness course, while drivers caught travelling between 54mph and 65mph are given an automatic offer of £60 fine and three penalty points or the opportunity to challenge the matter in court.

The worst offenders, who are caught travelling at more than 65mph, will appear in court, although the first of these offenders have yet to appear before a magistrate.

The average speed cameras, installed and operated by Sussex Safer Roads Partnership, are being used in the county for the first time.

They use cameras that scan a vehicle’s number plate and record its details as it enters and exits the covered zone.

Lives at risk

Phil Henty, the operations manager for Sussex Safer Roads Partnership, said the average speed cameras were having a “significant effect” on speeds through the roadworks.

He said: “When the scheme was first put in place, 1 in 100 vehicles were driving at over 40mph.

“This has now dropped to 1 in 1,000 – and it appears that numbers are still falling.

“There are still a few road users who think that it is acceptable to drive in excess of the speed limit.

“These people are putting themselves and others at risk.”

There have been at least 2 that I know of involving 2 or more cars. Probably due to speeding.
The speed limit is entirely justified as it is a major roadwork scheme, it needs to preserve the safety of the workers there if anything else. It really only adds about 5 minutes to my daily commute, except when there is an accident of course.
They will be there until next year.

That is an average of about £60.00 per fine, bearing in mind that the speed restriction is there for the safety of the workers I think that is an abysmally small fine each , doe snot even cover the cost of the paperwork .

Most days I see people in the outside and middle lanes slamming on their brakes in front of me, suddenly dropping right down to 40mph when they see the first set of cameras, and then speeding up once they have passed them. Perhaps some education as to what the term 'Average speed cameras' actually means would help people in this situation. I'm sure quite a lot of people think these cameras act like standard speed cameras.

I'm sure that they'll be "educated" by the speed awareness course or the fines/points that come from not knowing about average speed cameras!

The point is that these are major roadworks. The limit is 40mph for safety reasons. It is true there is a 10% error given to allow for speedometer inaccuracy. It seems that some leniency is given which means that drivers will not be pursued for 46mph or under. Reading some of the above comments regarding speed awareness courses it would appear that this is not taken very seriously. But remember who has to pick up the pieces when there are crashes and think would you want to do that task. Telling relatives of someones injury or demise is very difficult regardless of who is at fault. Speed limits are there for a reason and must be obeyed.

I was aggressively tailgated by a Parcelforce driver on this stretch last week.

I was in the outside lane alongside other vehicles and the only way for me to get out of his way, was to have sped up myself until I had gotten past a stream of at least 20 cars in the "slow" lane. I obviously didn't because this would have meant I'd have gotten caught by the cameras also.

The sad thing is that people can't stick to it. It's annoying, yes, but if you stick to it and go with the flow of traffic it only takes 10 minutes or so to get through.

Once you're through, if you want to do 95mph+ and put other peoples lives in danger that's your prerogative.

The most important thing with speed is to look at what everybody else is doing and do a similar speed yourself, providing you're not breaking a limit of course. If you're going too slow or too fast you're disrupting traffic flow which causes traffic problems and accidents.
