MPs & Radio Presenters Most Likely To Speed

Out of 1,400 professions, MPs have been named and shamed as the most likely to be convicted for both speeding and drink driving.

Around 22 per cent of MPs have a speeding conviction, placing them just ahead of radio presenters, who have a conviction rate of 19.2 per cent, and sales directors – with a 18.9 per cent rate.

They come after former Labour MP Fiona Onasanya was jailed for three months earlier this year for lying to police to avoid a speeding ticket.

Liberal Democrat MP Chris Huhne was jailed in 2013 along with his now ex-wife Vicky Pryce after he was caught speeding.

Other MPs to be caught breaking the speed limit include Tory MP Nicholas Soames and former Labour minister Ed Balls.
