Speedsters hitting Victoria Avenue

Thursday 05 February 2015


Four drivers were clocked doing more than 70 mph by police speed checks last year.

All four were caught on Victoria Avenue – a 40 mph zone – according to information released by the police under the new Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law.

The figures show the top 20 highest speeds recorded by road checks.

They also showed that the top speedster was caught at 75 mph, and was sent to the Magistrate’s Court where they were sentenced to a £480 fine and a two-month driving ban.

In total, six of those caught at the top speeds were given a driving ban ranging from one month to six months.

The top five speeders caught by the States of Jersey Police last year were:

  • 75 mph on Victoria Avenue - £480 fine and two-month ban.
  • 73 mph on Victoria Avenue - £440 fine and three-month ban.
  • 72 mph on Victoria Avenue - £420 fine and two-month ban.
  • 70 mph on Victoria Avenue - £250 fine and six-month ban.
  • 67 mph on Victoria Avenue - £400 fine.
