Telematics systems are being used by company car drivers to overturn speeding convictions and parking fines, according to fleet management systems provider Minorplanet. A surge in convictions has led many company car motorists to question the accuracy of speed cameras.

Minorplanet claim that fines had been cancelled using their reports.

“‘Mostly it is due to a faulty setting on the camera. But a cancellation of the fine is normally as a direct result of a telematics report, used as proof,” said operations director Andrew Tilman.

In another case a driver was able to prove he parked his car at 8.59 am after being accused of contravening a 9 am no parking rule.
