Suella Braverman, the UK Home Secretary, is under fire for attempting to avoid paying a traffic fine.

Suella Braverman, the UK Home Secretary, is under fire after it was reported in a media report on Sunday that she tried to avoid a driving fine after being caught speeding outside London when she was the country’s Attorney General last year.

Also requesting that Braverman be “urgently investigated” is Alistair Carmichael, the home affairs spokesman for the Liberal Democrats.

Anyone caught speeding in the UK faces a fine and penalty points on their licence unless they sign up for an awareness training, which is available in group meetings or online.

According to a spokeswoman for the Home Secretary, she “accepts and regrets that she was speeding last summer.” She paid the fine last year and accepted the three points on her licence, the spokeswoman continued. However, the topic has dominated headlines in the UK, with opposition parties demanding an independent investigation into whether Braverman violated the ministerial code, and British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s G7 press conference in Japan being overshadowed by the subject.

I don’t know the whole specifics of what happened, and I haven’t spoken to the Home Secretary, Sunak said in answer to a media query.

He said, “I believe you can see for yourself what I’ve been up to over the past day or so,” adding that he was aware that she had expressed guilt for speeding, accepted the punishment, and paid the fee.

Yvette Cooper, Labour’s shadow home secretary, termed it “shocking” that Braverman allegedly tried to circumvent the established process for speeding drivers.

Suella Braverman is in charge of maintaining the law in her capacity as home secretary, but this report shows that she attempted to use her authority to avoid the usual penalties.

Unless they enrol in a speed awareness course that is offered in group sessions or online, everyone caught speeding in the UK is subject to a fine and penalty points on their licence.
