Humberside Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Grove is to attend a speed awareness course after being recorded driving at 36mph on the Peaks Parkway in Grimsby at 9.30pm on Friday 4th October 2013.
Mr Grove said: “On Friday 4 October I attended a Question Time event in Grimsby and left around 9.30pm.
“I subsequently received a letter informing me my speed had been recorded at 36mph on The Peaks Parkway. I admitted being the driver and this week received a further letter with a conditional offer notice to attend a speed awareness course with a fee of £95, which I have accepted.
“I have driven over 20,000 miles this year and have a clean driving licence. I am therefore disappointed my driving was not to the required standard on this occasion. I will continue to drive myself to meetings and welcome this opportunity to use the course to reflect on my standard of driving.”
* Speed Awareness Courses are offered as an alternative to prosecution for offences committed at the lower end of the enforcement bandwidth in order to influence driver attitude and behaviour.
