Vehicle speed compliance statistics for Great Britain: April to June 2021

10 Sep 2021

Produced in addition to the regular annual statistics, to provide more timely information on compliance with speed limits during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.  These statistics provide insight into the speeds at which drivers choose to travel and their compliance with speed limits under free flow conditions, they should not be taken as estimates of actual compliance or actual average speed across the wider road network.

In April to June 2021:

  • on motorways the proportion of cars exceeding the speed limit on weekdays was lower than the same period in 2020 and similar to the same period in 2019
  • on NSL single carriageways, the proportion of cars exceeding the speed limit on weekdays and weekends was lower than the same period in 2020 and similar to the same period in 2019
  • on 30mph roads, the proportion of cars exceeding the speed limit on weekdays and weekends was lower when compared to the same periods in 2020 and 2019
