    'unlucky' - no offence but unless Nick was only over by a small amount or it was due to poor road signs then he only has himself to blame.

    Nah, I found out before Chrimbo but they offered to let me go on a speed awareness course to avoid the points.

    Thing is, the ONLY place I could do it was in the area I was nicked, so that would mean a day off work and a two hour drive to Swindon...

    I tried to get on a course up here but it's not possible.

    So that held up the process whilst we faffed over that.

    I was nabbed doing 36 in a thirty limit so it was a thoroughyl fair cop.

    In my defence it was on a dual carriageway which, about 1/4 of a mile further back, was a 50 limit but like I say, fair cop and all that.

    I thought there was a turn around of 3 weeks - if you had not heard anything 3 weeks after the date of the recorded offense.
    It is Inevitable.....

    I was caught doing 37ish in a 30 and sent to one of those re-education things. I met my grandfather there on the same night

    I got pulled over last year for doing 39 in a 30 and all the copper did was say "Don't do it again" and then he let me go...

    ... I was gobsmacked. I was certain that was 3 points on my licence for sure.

    Nah, got the letter about two weeks later.

    All that held up actually getting the license endorsed was the faffing as I tried to get the education thingie done up here and not down in Swindon.

    I once got caught doing 90 on the M6 by a camera. Thing is, I didn't know this until I got back from a three month stint of travelling by which time several warning letters and eventually a court summons were also waiting for me.

    I phoned them to explain I had no idea I had been fined. Turned out the prosecuting officer was off sick, and they'd cancelled all of their upcoming low-importance court cases. So the whole thing was dropped, didn't even get the original £60 + 3 points.

    I seem to remember paying about £80 for the DVLA to scrawl on it for me.

    And then I got done again, 35 in a 30 and had to retake my test, oh what it is to be young and craaayzee!

    I don't drive any more, but was a a bit of a speed twit when I did. I first got done on the A5 at Brownhills. 46 in a 40mph zone, BUT it was 50 on the other side of the dual carriageway. I was doing the return trip and was convinced it was still 50 !

    grrr
    Cheers, David
