I don't know what your prob is mate but I hope it's not too serious.

My mate got hit with a 100 fine yesterday n points for holding his phone whilst driving, the copper even admits he wasn't texting or holding it upto his ear but none the less the body of the phone was in his hand, another got hit with 50 fog lights fine.

Plain cloths bobbies are cracking down hard

Stay safe fellow ford owners ;- ) and good luck oliver

I got pulled tonight for doing 31 in a 30 zone... I actually couldn't believe it, it was genuinely hard to be polite and keep a straight face... needless to say I've recorded everything and will be making my thoughts known tomorrow.

31? Even I think that's pedantic.

Clearly the officers where bored.

 

Did you just get a tick in the ear?

I always thought there was a 'Speedlimit + 10%' unwritten rule? 

 

Must be worth an appeal?

You can go 10% above the speed shown on your speedo as they are calibrated to over read.
It's standard industry practice to avoid getting sued if they under read.
We also used to allow a couple of mph extra too but not anymore.

The couple extra is now normally the buffer for the speed awareness course if I'm right Stoney...

Pretty much yes.

The criteria used for assessing eligibility for the speed awareness course is speed within range of speed limit + 10% + 2mph to speed limit + 10% +6mph. i.e. in a 30 mph limit 35 - 39 mph, also you must not have completed a previous course within the last 3 years and the offender must have identified themselves to police by fully complying with legal requirements under Section 172 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 and is able to be referred to the course provider within 95 days of the alleged offence.

Have had a couple of friends do the course... They said it was an eye opener and well worth doing.

Don't know if it will slow them forever but I suppose it helps
To highlight the dangers and see images etc rather than just smack some points on the livense
