The Highways Agency has released a statement following the Crown Prosecution Service accusing it of displaying unclear speed limits on the M42, which could see thousands of motorists let-off for speeding convictions.
We have resolved an issue relating to the font used on speeds signs on our motorways. The signs were always entirely legible and the mandatory speed limit clear. Following queries that suggested that this may not have been, we clarified the issue in November 2012.
The signs, which were located on the motorway west of Coventry, showed the speed limit 'taller and narrower that they should have been', said Crown Prosecution Services.
More than 11,000 motorists may now receive their money back.
