UK drivers can now face fines up to £640 if caught by speed cameras going too fast on the roads in France, Netherlands and Belgium. Until May 7, the UK has been exempt from the rules but now it is being enforced. Be advised, in at least 14 EU countries, (including France), the vehicle owner is ultimately liable for fines, even if they were not driving at the time of the offence.
Under this new ruling, EU governments have the power to access vehicle ownership records held by other countries, (DVLA). These will then be used to prosecute drivers. Breaking speed limits by more than 31mph can result in fines of up to €750 under the reforms, (which came in 2015). The UK, Ireland and Denmark were given a two-year exemption however the law was introduced in the EU.
