Police generate nearly £70K in fines

The number of prosecutions for speeding has revealed Manx residents to be the main offenders over the TT festival.

Data released from the department of home affairs shows across a five year period, 65 registered drivers on the Isle of Man were summoned to court, compared to 44 from the UK.

Other European nations like Spain and Republic of Ireland registered just two offences.

The figures, which concern the 16 days from Saturday of practice week to the last Sunday of race week, also include fixed penalty notices or on the spot fines for speeding.

They show 135 tickets issued to UK residents, while 112 were given to Manx road users since 2014.

A grand total of 447 FPNs were issued over the five years, generating £67,050 from the fines.
