The department of magical law enforcement has reported an increase in the number of speeding offences in the last year. Year on year statistics show that fines were up nearly 10% for flying at excessive speed through muggle controlled zones, and flying without due care and attention to observation offences were up by 8%.
Filius Ambridge, spokesman for the safety group "BRASS" (Broom Riders Against Silly Speeds) condemned selfish flyers for risking observation by Muggles.
In the worst incident, a group of young witches were almost in collision with a Muggle light plane as they practiced quidditch, and a stray bludger left a sizeable dent in the muggle artefact.
"All broom riders should ensure they comply with the provisions of the Broom Traffic Act" said Ambridge.
