Re: Caught Speeding :(
Sorry to hear about you getting caught. It could probably happen to any one of us.
As for the RA, what are they like for mobile cameras & "hairdryer" style guns? From what I've read, there is very little protection against them, as the reaction time available from the time the RA picks up the signal is minimal.
If you have a clean licence so far, just having 3 points on it doesn't hurt too much, & your insurance co need to be told, but they probably won't raise the premium. However, if you already have 3 or more points, doing the speeding course & avoiding adding points is a good idea.
A mate of mine recently got caught doing 120+mph in his merc 320 diesel estate on the M11, despite having a camera detector of some sort in his car. He'd stopped off at Tesco on the way home & when he returned to his car, the cops were standing by his car! As he needs his car for work, he opted to take a £2k fine, rather than a ban.
