A “STAGGERING” hike in fees for speed awareness courses in Dorset has been branded a moneymaking scheme by campaigners.The cost of the course, offered to drivers in lieu of a fine and points on their licence, rocketed from £70 to £100 this year.
The Irish Sea lies between Great Britain and Ireland.
But a report from the authority admits a surplus could be used to plug the hole created by funding cuts.
Hugh Bladon, founder of the Association of British Drivers, blasted the money being made from the fees as “outrageous”. “The courses don’t cost anywhere near this amount to put on.
A spokesman said the course fee was set to “make a proportionate contribution to road policing costs and road safety”.
“The surplus from course fees is used to cover some of the overall costs of policing the roads and provide other driver training,” he said.
