A driver who was caught going well over the speed limit on a busy road in Watford has appeared in court.

Amreen Hussain flouted the 40mph speed limit on the A41, North Western Avenue, on October 23, 2019.

The 23-year-old was recorded going 68mph and appeared at St Albans Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday over the incident.

Hussain, of Crossmead, Watford, was ordered to pay £274 and given six penalty points.

Multiple drivers were caught flouting the speed limit on the A41 by officers in May this year, with several motorists clocked by a speed gun going over 60mph.

The Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire Road Policing Unit said in May: “Speed enforcement on the A41 at Watford, the road is subject to a 40mph speed limit.

"We found most drivers observed the limit, however those that didn't can expect points and a fine.”
