  1. Hi all, Brand new here so hi to everyone, I hope you are doing better than me right now. I am completely at fault doing 91 in a 70, I'm embarrassed and sincerely sorry but I doubt this will change anything. I have read that the fine is determined largely by my salary. I am currently on 85k and this is my first driving offence in over a decade, I've been driving for 15 years and am now 32. No criminal convictions. From a few other websites it appears I can be fined in the region of £2,000. For someone trying to save for a deposit on a house this is quite depressing. Sho
  2. I received an NIP for "speeding" on the motorway in a speed restricted area. The signage was very unclear and when I sped up it was because I thought the speed restricted zone had ended as there was no signage to suggest otherwise and other motorists sped up too making it unsafe for me to continue at the restricted speed. I was recorded as going 9 miles over the speed limit when I called to ask about this they told me that it was an average taken from when I entered the zone and when I left. Does anybody know anything about how they work this out? And how I could challenge thi
  3. Received 2 NIPs from different police forces after being caught by speed cameras, one in one force area, the 2nd in another force area. Was continuing a journey on the same motorway in the middle of the night, temp roadworks - unmanned - speed not excessive but over the limit, but each one was within the speed thresholds. One force offered me a speed awareness course, but the other refused and instead issued me with the more severe *Conditional Offer Of Fixed Penalty*, i.e. £100 fine plus 3 points. I did the course, cost me £76. I contend that the other force should not have issued m
  4. Hi guys, two quick questions really, just looking for some advise on both please. Firstly I pleaded guilty by post but now it has been adjourned so that I have to attend the second date. The letter is a bit confused, it says if you don't attend the court can hear the case in my absence and disqualify me, the disqualification will take place immediately so don't drive on the date of the hearing. However... it also says that if not attending an option is they can issue a warrant for my arrest! I plan to attend, although as the court is 250 miles away if given the choice
  5. I have been caught speeding at 105mph on a motorway which is a 70mph by a laser gun. it was in a work vehicle if I lose my licence I have lost my job. Work said they will write me a letter to back this up. I have a clean licence and I am not proud of speeding and this has taught me a valuable lesson. Will I need a motor lawyer to back my case to get the lightest sentence possible or could I do this alone. I do around 40-50 thousand miles a year.
  6. Hello, I was travelling to London from Leicester on Saturday 7th June 2014. I went through several M1 southbound road works and mostly kept up with packs of motor cars and only checked my speed gauge at the beginning of the road works to ensure I complied. There were two occasions when I had to overtake, once when a driver was down to 40mph and created a huge gap ahead with a long line of tailback. The second time was when the driver ahead of me was texting on the mobile and at times quite erratic, the lanes being quite narrow and so choosing a moment of safety I rushed to overtake. Please
  7. My husband was given a fixed penalty notice this afternoon while stopped on the hard shoulder of the M602 in Manchester. He had pulled over as our two year old who is currently quite ill was coughing so much he was really worried he was choking on something. He had to undo his seat belt so he could turn round and and check on our little boy and make sure he was OK , while he was doing this a police car pulled up behind him and put on his lights. The police didn't get out of his vehicle he wait a couple of minutes and then beeped at my husband and gestured for him to get out of our
  8. Hi all, I recently had the misfortune of a stray dog jumping in front of my car, whilst the car was at 70 miles per hour, with no room or time, whatsoever, to maneuver to avoid it. The dog appeared from the crash barrier guards, literally about 3 meters in front of the car and jumped onto the path of the car. I looked to my left, there was a car, so I couldn't swerve left, to the right was the crash barrier so couldn't swerve right. I instinctively, slammed on the foot brake, but at 70 mph all you get is the ABS preventing wheel lock and you cannot stop within that distance. The in

  10. Is there any legislation covering parking at motorway service stations and are any "tickets" issued enforceable? Is the land private or is it covered by motorway legislation?
