    General Motoring Discussion
    This sums up my luck this year! I was caught speeding in a Vauxhall vivaro van I was doing 59 in a 60 zone yes that's not a typo 59mph. Just a word of warning for anyone that might be or is driving a van, 50mph is the limit on national speed limit roads.

    In August this year my last three points (speeding) expired. Oh yes! In September I got a NIP for speeding (83 in a 70) on the A12 - for those who know it there is a set of averaging cameras between Witham and Kelvedon. That was a speed awareness course (my last one was over 3 years before) so...

  8. GT speeding jumping

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Here's a new one then, my speedo when accelerating is not smooth and will jump about 3mph at a time, then pause and jump. I'm guessing it is driven off one of the ABS wheel sensors but does anyone know which one? If it is the left hand front one then I suppose I am seeing what the ABS is...

  13. Caught Speeding!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So, there I was enjoying a nice session of boost and glide on the A417 from Glos towards Swindon, achieving high mph and high mpg. My enjoyment was rudely interrupted when I noticed a camera van at the bottom of a crest. Despite the front end of the '59 dropping a couple of inches, I received...

    General Motoring Discussion

    Over two weeks ago now, I was stopped by a police car for doing 68 when coming into a 40 zone. I basically did not slow down quick enough. In the police car they explained that as I was over the 66 threshold, so it would be dealt by court summons, However I havent heard anything yet. The...

  20. Should it be 'legal' to nick you for speeding

    General Motoring Discussion
    on the M6 toll? Ron's thread got me thinking. Is the toll road just another part of the motorway network, in which case why should we pay for it? Or is it a privately owned road, in which case why do the police have jurisdiction?
