I was under the impression it was >10% so 34 in a 30, 45 in 40 etc however where Iíve got that from Iíve no idea. I was also led to believe that most cars with a digital display these days will slightly exaggerate for your benefit. Could be urban myth territory there again however.

I believe this to be correct.

ps I understand what your figures mean

At best you will likely get 6 points and a fine based on income and you may even have to attend court.
I got done for 86mph in a 60 mph limit a few years ago - court attendance, 6 points and a £750 fine payable immediately - no easy terms!
I was threatened with a 28 day ban which I would have accepted but they decided that they wanted me to suffer as I already had 3 points on my licence.
Driving for 3 years with 9 points is difficult - there are so many cameras just waiting to send you to 12 points!
Good luck!

I guess what your saying dolphin; is that the poster is fecked !

Iíve got to do a lovely speed awareness course in Chatham to avoid the points which is costing me £92, I donít mind paying the money, but having to brave going to Chatham is a big worry

30 in a 20 is understandable but 35 is like oops.

Itís easily done, if you werenít aware itís a 20 or any roads in the Croydon borough are, unless itís a main road. Many people drive at 35+ on 30 roads, especially when keeping up with cars in front, which is what people generally do, especially as more and more people drive.

What is, or was the original protocol for making a 30 road a 20? There are some really odd ones, and very long too, which when overtaking happens, is more dangerous

Chaldon Way, Coulsdon valley (fgs)
Pampisford Rd/Haling Park Rd
Purley Downs Rd (wtf? 5 minutes?)
Riddlesdown Rd (lol. 2 miles?)
Rectory Hill (joins bottom of Riddlesdown to Sanderstead Waitrose. Laughable)

It would probably be better to advertise on tv and radio and on signs, the danger of tailgating, on any roads, especially these, when the driver isnít anywhere near as talented as they think they are, seat reclined back as far as possible with right hand on top of steering wheel trying to look the bollox. Hoodie or cap or both optional.

I got done on the M25 on the way back from the Oxford game going 65mph in a reduced 50mph zone. Was 11:30 at night, almost nobody on the road and they reduced it to 50 I'm sure just to catch people out. Got a NIP through the post. It will either me speed awareness course or £100 and 3 points. Waiting to hear back what they're going to do. So annoying to be done for speeding by going less than the usual speed limit for the road.

One camera or average speed over the whole section (they time cameras or reg plate readers) so you can slow right down if you think youíre going to get an average speed too high)

Itís to protect pedestrians I think. Although the Tower bridge 20 mph limit is actually to protect the structure. I know as did a speed awareness for just that and asked why it was 20mph when itís Barriered all the way across. Not many like that apart from bridges and old town centres I would guess.

Been done twice in recent months - 78 mph on the M23 and 36 in a 30 limit in Bexhill. Both by "hidden" cameras (not the big yellow ones). Not been done for over 30 years before this.

It's a money-making excercise to which I keep falling foul.

didn't think this was allowed either, thought they had to be clearly visible - it's a deterrent afterall!

Isnít it. Some of those roads donít have any pedestrians or pedestrians walking out into the road. Many ignore the 20 limit until some want to overtake. Enforcing the 30 more would be better. In real side roads with houses and cars parked on both side of narrow roads I get it. (Doesnít stop some, including parcel couriers) Longer, wider roads I donít get.

When I got my letter it mentioned prosecution but gave me the option of attending a course or taking the points
