If you’re new to the UK, you may not be familiar with its roads, so you must be careful when driving. In this episode, Jessie from the Youtube channel “Little Jessie Mama 英倫新旅程” will share with you the process of speeding in the UK, as well as the driving point system and navigation program, in her video titled “Her dad was caught by a speeding camera”. It’s important that you pay attention!
British drivers actually start with 0 points. If they get 12 points within three years, they will be suspended from driving for 6 months. A 1 year suspension will be levied if you’re eligible for the second time within 3 years. The following figure shows the speed limit of different vehicles:
After being caught by the speed camera, the police will send the ticket within 14 days to the Notice of intended prosecution (NIP), which will inform the registered owner of the speeding date and time. The car owner then needs to inform the police which driver was driving at the time, and is obliged to provide the details of the driver who violated the regulations. Upon completing this step, you will receive a fax. According to your speeding situation, you can see how much you are fined, and you can choose to accept the fine or go to court. If there is no similar incident within 3 years, you can take a driving improvement course to gain extra points.
The driving improvement course is taught online using Zoom and takes less than three hours. The content is probably to explain how dangerous speeding is, why people speed, and how to read the speed limit road signs… all of which must be read when testing license plates. During the class, the instructor will ask the students one by one what they think.
Waze is a must-have navigation app for UK drivers. Compared with Google Map, Waze updates the map faster, collecting the latest information of users and then making updates to present a more accurate road reality to everyone. In addition, it provides a social area where users can report real-time traffic conditions, such as roadblocks, traffic accidents, or fast-moving locations,
In the summer of 2021, Youtuber Jessie’s family immigrated to the UK and embarked on a new journey.
Youtuber Jessie hopes to share every bit of their life in the UK: life in the UK, cooking fun, children reading, traveling to England, etc. She hopes everyone can experience life in the UK. Youtuber Jessie has also become a home chef and hopes to share with you simple and easy recipes, especially Hong Kong-style cuisine – perhaps also cure any homesickness.
