Nil point Somehow!

Did have 3 points in '97 after running a red light and cutting a copper up... not my brightest of moments, but a was young and stupid at the time. Now I am just older and stupid.

Re: How many points do you have?

I have in the past managed to outrun a copper in my Punto before the GTA

I had sped up a bit prematurely coming out of a 30 zone with traffic calming, with the 60 limit in sight. I was only doing about 40-45 but saw a copper at the traffic calming going the other way, then saw them start to turn around.

With two choices;

1) Speed up and hoof it round the bend and dissapear down my road, hoping to be out the way before they catch up.

2) Let them catch me and get a telling off.

I chose option 1

Re: How many points do you have?

Naughty naughty Eddie.

My licence is clean for the first time in years, every time my points cleared off, I'd end up with another 3 within a week - done that twice now.

Managed to escape 6 points a few years ago luckily because I wouldn't have been able to afford the insurance on 9 points. All clean now so I can drive like a loon again!

Never had any points on my license. If I get any ever, it will be your fault OA for starting this poll

Karma rules state that anyone who posted in this thread is now automatically cursed. You will all end up with at least 3 points by the end of the day.

Good luck on the drive home everyone!

Re: How many points do you have?

Ironically, i had a squeeky clean license UNTIL

The day after purchasing my alfa, on the way back from signing the papers, i lost 3 points out of excitement in a flaming rover.

Re: How many points do you have?

Just the three from a fixed penalty SP50 that I was very happy to take from a very sympathetic policeman who clocked me at well over the license losing threshold on the M1.

Re: How many points do you have?

None, and never had any.

Which I guess means I am pointless. What a harsh poll.

(Did have to go on a Driver re-education course to avoid one lot of 3 Points though.)

Re: How many points do you have?

"Speaky" clean for me, having lost the last three recently. Also "other" as our dear old police force are more interested in the money than the crime. Nothing further!
