Speed limits and fines

Speed limits

The UK still uses the imperial system for road signs. All limits and restrictions are set in miles per hour (1 mile = 1.61 kilometres) and yards (1 yard = 0.91 meters).

Knowing the national generic limits for cars and motorbikes will make life a lot easier, so you don't have to convert in your head while driving. On UK roads, it is unusual to find speed limit signs unless the speed limit differs from the “standard” limit for that road type.

Speed Cameras and Fines

The Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) generally suggests a margin of 10% plus 2mph of the posted speed limit before giving you a speeding ticket. Individual police forces can use their discretion, though, so even driving in excess of 1mph could result in a fine.

If police catch you speeding, you can risk the following:

  • A verbal warning
  • Attending a speed awareness course, which you'll have to pay for
  • A Fixed Penalty Notice (a speeding ticket) plus a £100 fine
  • Prosecution. You will have to go to court and you could face a fine of up to £1,000 (£2,500 if you were speeding on the motorway) and a possible driving disqualification

Roads

There are 3 main types of road in the UK and signs and speed limits will differ depending on where you’re driving. These 3 road types are:

  • The Incredibles 2 Doll Bob Parr Stuffed&Animals Plush Kids Baby Christmas Gift,High-speed roads (70 mph) where slow vehicles and pedestrians are forbidden. Motorway signs are blue with white text. Motorways are named with an M prefix or suffix (for example M6 or A6 (M)). Junctions and exits are announced one mile in advance, with several signs until the exit. Motorways are free to drive on except for a small part of the M6, north of Birmingham
  • Star Wars Extra Large Yoda Soft Toy Official Plush 54cm, Smaller and slower roads which can either be single or dual carriageways. Signs are green with white text. You can find both primary A-roads and primary B-roads, B-roads are generally regional and link up less populated areas.
  • Sullivan On Board Onboard Glow Plug Driver For Nitro Engine Five Cylinder M064, These routes are often present when there is a primary route close by. They offer an alternative which may be more direct and avoid dual carriageways. They can be either A or B roads, and signs are white with black writing. 

You can also find C roads across the UK, but these are very small and not often noted on national maps.

Road signs  

Some road signs will be familiar, but there are a few that you can only find in the United Kingdom. Here are the main ones:

Driving in London 

England’s capital is a must-visit destination for tourists. You may decide to ditch your car and get on the tube, but if you want to see the city from the comfort of your own car then read on to get our tips. 

a. London Congestion Charge 

To avoid traffic in London, there is a toll that drivers in the city centre must pay from Monday to Friday between 7am and 6pm. 

To pay it, you have to register your license plate online before travelling. It costs £11.50 per car per day.

Road Etiquette and Tips 

Every country has its own driving etiquette and the UK is no different. Here are our top tips for using the road like a local! 

  • Horns should only be used when someone's driving behaviour is really dangerous - and only a quick pip. Any prolonged sounding of the horn is considered hostile. The use of a car horn is not permitted in built-up areas between 11.30pm and 7 am
  • In traffic, always let at least one car in at junctions and exits where possible. It’s only polite!
  • Don't ever try to queue jump (go up the wrong lane and then try to get in late). Drivers will not let you in and you may find yourself blocked deliberately.
  • Flash your lights or blink your hazard lights a few times to express ‘thank you’, ‘you’re welcome’ or ‘go ahead’, depending on the situation.
  • Allow fire, police and ambulance vehicles to pass safely and legally. Continue to drive until you find a place to safely pull out of the way but don’t stop dead in the middle of the road or break the law unless instructed by a police officer.
  • British roads are fairly narrow. The vehicle coming uphill is always given priority.
  • On British motorways, there is no so-called "fast lane". Unless you are overtaking another vehicle, you should remain in the left-hand lane ("Lane 1") at all times. If you change lanes, you must signal with your indicator.
  • The police can arrest you if you drive below the speed required. If an officer thinks your driving is a risk to other road users, even if you are driving slowly, you can be fined.
  • Don’t drive too close to the vehicle in front of you. Understand that some drivers make an effort to maintain a safe, legal, braking distance behind the car in front.

Five main concerns addressed by the AA 

The AA is the UK’s biggest motoring association. It is the most popular breakdown cover provider in the country, and also offers car insurance, driving lessons, route planning and driving advice. We’ve been in touch with Chris Patience, responsible for all of the AA’s online motoring advice and information, to get some tips about driving in the UK.

Driving on the left

On dual carriageways and motorways use the left-hand lane unless overtaking.

Pay particular attention when turning at a junction or rejoining the road after a short stop (refueling etc.) as this is when you are most likely to forget and revert to driving on the right.

There is no general priority rule. You must stop at junctions with a solid white line across the road and must give way to traffic on the main road when emerging from a junction with broken white lines across the road.

Roundabouts

SKYRC iMAX B6 Mini 100% Original OEM Digital Rc Lipo Battery Balance Charger,Roundabouts are very common in Britain and are generally safer than other types of the junction as long as you follow a few simple rules.

Traffic always flows in a clockwise direction around roundabouts.

The general rule is to give way to traffic approaching from your right unless you are directed to do otherwise by signs, road markings or traffic lights.

As you approach a roundabout pay particular attention to any signs and lane markings directing you to the correct lane for your exit.

If you do drive in the central zone you will have to pay the congestion charge. The charge is payable Monday to Friday between 7 am and 6 pm and the zone is identified by signs and road markings displaying a white 'C' on a red background.

Accidents

Breakdowns

Spektrum DSMR Surface Aluminum Transmitter Case DX2E DX4S DX4R DX4C DX6R SPM6716,Breakdowns are stressful enough at home but can be even more so if you're in a foreign country and don't know the language or who to contact. Talk to your national breakdown service provider to ensure that your policy is extended to include cover abroad.

If your car breaks down, get your vehicle off the road if possible. Make sure you warn other traffic by using your hazard warning lights, particularly if your vehicle is causing an obstruction

If your car breaks down on a motorway, do the following: 

  • Pull onto the hard shoulder and stop as far to the left as possible
  • Leave your sidelights on and turn on the hazard warning lights
  • Get out of the vehicle by the left-hand door and make sure that all your passengers do the same
  • Wait behind a barrier well away from the carriageway and hard shoulder
  • On motorways without a hard shoulder, use an emergency refuge area, motorway service area, or leave at the next exit
  • If you have to stop in a live lane, put your hazard lights on, and dial 999 or 112. Do not attempt to leave your vehicle unless you are in the left-hand lane and it is safe to do so.
