The Weekly Roundup

An in-car telematics device was fitted in over 10,000 hired motors and the results measured across six months. The research found that female drivers are typically 17.5% more likely to break legal speed limits than men, according to In-Car Cleverness. Women were involved in 67 of the speeding cases seen, men in 57.

Thousands of motorists fined for overstaying in private car parks could be entitled to millions of pounds worth of repayments, according to the RAC Foundation. A leading UK barrister presented a legal opinion for the motoring charity highlighting how parking companies are handing out huge charges to drivers, way out of proportion to the losses actually suffered by landowners.
