A million motorists have been caught speeding on stretches of the A2 and A12 in the Netherlands, according to figures by the country’s Justice Department.

DutchNews.nl reports that the average speed cameras captured 650,000 on the A2 between Utrecht and Amsterdam and 413,000 were caught on the A12 near Utrecht.

It says the third most lucrative route for speeding tickets was the A4 near Leidschendam.

In total, 2.1 million tickets were issued to cars caught on Dutch motorways, a drop of 77,000 on the previous year. With an average fine of almost €60, these delivered around €121m to the treasury, the justice ministry figures show.

The total number of fines for traffic offences issued last year reached 9.2 million, including speeding, jumping red lights, wrongful parking and driving while using a mobile phone.
