Speed Awareness Courses


 The Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland Safety Camera Scheme launched the Speed Awareness Workshops in October 2004. The Workshops have been initiated to compliment the philosophy of the Safety Camera Scheme which consists of the 3 E’s: Engineering, Education and Enforcement.

The workshops come under the Education strategy. Its aim is to change people’s attitudes towards speeding, to make them more aware of their own responsibility for their actions and to develop a personal speed awareness strategy.

The offer of attending a course is only made for low-level speeding offences. Those who are eligible will receive information on how to book a workshop with their penalty offer from the Police.

A course is offered as an alternative to the fine and 3 penalty points.

There is no need for any special preparation: there are no tests and no driving is involved.  By the end of the course, we hope that drivers will have a deeper understanding of how they can keep themselves and other people safe on the roads.
