The Government has announced plans to quadruple speeding fines on the motorway - but will they have the desired effect?

At the wheel is roads policing officer PC Wayne Mills. He has his foot down and is weaving in and out of traffic as his partner, PC Charlie Etheridge, checks the radio for an update on the accident we are speeding towards. "It's a fatal [accident], involving a female and a two-week-old baby girl on the southbound carriageway. The female is deceased and the condition of the baby is unknown," he says in staccato fashion, struggling to stay steady as we accelerate on to the M40 motorway in Oxfordshire.
