Top 20 speeding hotspots in the UK

New research by shows how drivers today are treating UK roads like race tracks. In fact our research shows that one driver was caught doing 161mph on an A road in Norfolk last year.

To gauge just how fast this speeder was going, the average lap speed at Formula One Race Track Silverstone is 215 km/h which works out at 134 mph. This is just under 30mph slower than the speed demon who was caught travelling in Norfolk.

To reflect these areas where speeding has topped the charts, we have put together this interactive map showing the top 20 speeding hotspots in the UK in 2012.

So beware of these racing driver wannabes!
