A recent report by the Institute of Advanced Motorists has said that speeding offences comitted on the UK highways and roads can't be traced due to the vehicle not being registered in the UK. The drivers stay overseas in Europe outside Britain.

The report suggests that around 23,000 offences occurred since the beginning of January 2013. The figures were released due to the freedom of information act in England and Wales.

The biggest offences are in and around the London area mainly M25 in Kent, A3 in Surrey and A31 in Hampshire.

How does this effect car rental vehicles.
