I have surely gone too fact occasionally but I have never been caught
I understand that to be caught one must be doing 30+%+x, maybe 37 mph
Are your neighbours ashamed of themselves?
I knew a woman now dead,who was caught speeding(static camera that she knew was there) 33mph in a 30 limit,she thought it harsh £60 +3 points at the time she wasn't given the option of a safety course as they weren't available at the time.
She wasn't ashamed just felt she'd made a small mistake.
How did you learn about this case?
Seems people are NOT ashamed, else they would try not to tell anyone, right?
Her misdemeaner came out in conversation we were having about driving,as I recall at the time there was a craze for some drivers to fit blue lights in place of their side light bulbs* and she was saying that she'd pulled over to the side thinking she was holding up a police car on an eremergence call only to be passed by Mr Tw@tinahatchback(my term not hers).
*The craze has re-emerged around these parts(I've even seen a couple of HGVs on the motorway similarly adorned ) along with illegal script reg plates,but nothing gets done about them .
There's a Tw@tinajag who lives close to me who was driving about on false reg plates for three,that's THREE years,before being caught despite numerous reporting by his neighbours,and surprise surprise when he was he had no VED,MOT or insurance.
Same wide boy was also driving anther car with different reg plates front and back for a number of months without ever being caught,again in spite of numerous complaints from various people.
