  1. Hi, thanks again for your help. I'm a courier; the insurance companies always stuff us. Thanks again for everyone's help, I'll keep the post updated.
  2. Hi, thanks for the reply. That's not good news. Their reply: "Thank you for your email. We wish to apologise for the delay in responding to your email we have been inundated with queries. We are currently working on providing a digital course for you to undertake, this will need to be paid in full at the time of booking. Please would you review the website next week periodically for an update." A "fixed penalty" does that include points? It would be fine without the points, but if I get any points that'll be £££ on my insurances, I'd might as well stop what I'm doing. Thanks again.
  3. Hi Thanks again fro everyone's help. I've been offered a course, however all courses have been cancelled for the foreseeable future, I have to check the site every now and then. Maybe even to do a possible online course. I had to go to Exeter yesterday, and I noticed in parts the A303 had 2 lanes (crawler/overtaking lane?) side, but no central reservation and also derestricted, but I kept to 50mph, lesson learned. Thanks again, stay safe.
  4. Hi, thanks for the reply, and knowledge. I'll have a look next time up there, I nearly always use that route to Chester.
  5. Hi, thanks for the reply. No, I was definately on a 2 lane (my side) of the road (an overtaking section?), the otherside may have been a single lane. As it was uphill and possibly down to one lane again somewhere after a section of road possibly.
  6. Hi, ok thanks again, "You can't have a dual carriage way on one side!" didn't know this inspite of driving for some 40yrs. Every day a school day
  7. Hi, thanks for the reply. Yes, as you say 50 on single and 60 on dual carriageways, That's why I kept below 60 because my side became a dual after the roundabout, but you may be right. If you are, that's .......(no comment), that means I can't overtake lorries, I totally understand if it's on a dual or even a 3 lane road which is 50; for example along the A3 into London in built-up areas. But in the Countryside?! Thanks again, I'll send a letter in with the NIP and see what is what.
  8. Many thanks, hopefully, I pay £1500 a yr now with no points, claims etc.
  9. Hi, thanks for the reply, No, no mention of limit. Please see attached.
  10. Hi, Firstly sorry, I have read as many other posts NIP related. Got an NIP @59mph, I genuinely thought it was a 60mph limit (dual carriageway in the countryside) just after a roundabout on the A5 Halton/Wrexham and after being stuck behind lorries for a while, the road became a dual carriageway so I overtook and on the bridge was a camera van. Thought I'm under 60mph fine, obviously not, it must of been a 50mph. Just to say I've had a clean licence for many yrs, try to stick to speed limits etc and I do about 40k mls a yr as a courier. Sorry for the long post, of course I'll send the NIP back with details, but, what are the chances of getting a speed awareness course? Thanks for any help.
  11. Yes agree. Thx again for everyone's help and advice.
  12. Well post has been, nothing for 15days, no address changes. A few more days to be sure. Thanks again for everyone's help.
  13. Oh agree. That's why I've no points on my licence for many years. But I do believe 3secs from amber to red even travelling well inside the speed limit is not enough to jump onto the brakes of a 2tonne vehicle whilst doing so safely and without causing a brake failure. Which has happen in the past. So I glad we don't or haven't seen these cashcows in the Hampshire I live in.
  14. Bummer! Many thanks again for all your help.
