The police must have loads of time on their hands to be catching all these criminal drivers. I'll remember that next time my bike gets nicked.

And all the fines vary, yet a lot of the offences were the same.

ie, non wearing of seatbelt and using a mobile phone.

Mobile phone offences used to be £60 and 3 points before 16th August 2013, but now £100 and 3 points.

Non wearing of seat belts were the same, but no points on your licence.

Yet the offences above all had varying fines given to them.

Of course fines vary

They are calculated on a percentage of your weekly income

I thought they were fixed penalty offences, surely they didn't all refuse to accept the fixed penalty? Seems unusual!!

It's a fixed penatly notice by the roadside but those do not apply if the charge is brought to court,
There are many reasons it could be brought to court
The speeding was considered excessive
The offence was a repeated one they were caught for before
They reject it at roadside to plead not guilty
et al

If it goes to court the magistrates will apportion a fine (and or other punishments) relevant to the degree of the offence.
When you arrive at court you must fill in a financial statement showing your income and expenditure. They then charge that fine as a percentage of your disposable income.

What is fixed is court costs and victim surcharges

Obviously Paul Daniels (who was recently charged with speeding offences) doesn't have much of a disposable income, otherwise he would have been fined a hell of a lot more than £625
