  1. Good evening all, I am in a sticky situation, I received an invitation letter to go to the National Speed Awareness Scheme to write off my speeding offence, I was doing 58mph on a 50mph zone. My current situation: I've been financially struggling due to getting married in July abroad and money is something I've been struggling with but I'm getting by and putting things into place. I received the letter for the course on 7th January 2019 with every intention of attending the course, but I completely misread the situation, when I went online to drivetech to have a look a
  2. Two questions: A) Has there been a precedent for instances of inconsistent, incorrect or the inappropriate application of variable speed limit policy on a Motorway providing a legal basis to challenge a speeding ticket? For example: 1) Motorway road works have road side speed limit signs stating 60 mph but overhead gantry displaying lower variable speed limit i.e. 30 mph without risk factor justification. The remotely controlled gantry signs do not correspond to conditions on the ground. 2) Motorway road works end and maybe end of road works signs are displayed each side of the
  3. Hi. I'm just wondering what the law is regarding having Mobile Speed Camera Vans stationed next to GATSO's. I received a ticket, my fault I was over the limit but was already slowing as I go past the GATSO every day. It's a 70mph dual carriageway which drops to 60 about 500 yards before the camera, then returns to 70 again. There have been no recent incidents here, any reason the Police would do this? Just seems like a way to make money from those passing the '60' signs still just over the limit as they slow down.

We know taking the loan out was wrong but we had no option at the time, we took a loan of £250.00 and now unable to repay in lump sum, they text every day emails and its getting worse they demeand £359.00 now and sent this email We have made a number of attempts to contact you by email and SMS to discuss the outstanding balance on the short-term loan you took out on 14.08.12 and you have made no effort to return these enquiries.

  6. 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
  7. Yesterday morning i was travelling into work a long the road, the local speed trap van is normally parked the the lay by but this time the van was parked in the middle of the dividing land hidden in trees Is it legal for a speed van to hide within trees ?
  8. Hey Guys Thank you for having me on your forum, Been very incredibly stupid this evening on the way home from worOn my way home this evening from work I decided to go through the country roads. I was going though a smallish village, and just before exiting the village there were 3 guys in high viz with a speed gun pointing at me (not Police). Hands up far cop I was going over the speed limit as the guy holding the gun had a shocked look on his face. The road was a 30, and to be honest I just wasn't thinking. Saw the national speed up ahead and saw the guys too lat
  9. Hopefully someone can help me find the best product. My Peugeot Partner decided the speedometer doesn't want to work. My mechanic has tried everything he can think of to get it working again. Refurbished ECU, Speed cable, Sender unit from gearbox but nothing. Is there any one on here who can tell me of any plug and play devices that will throw up the current speed I am doing?. needs to be a large enough display to see from the windscreen. Many thanks in advance
  10. 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
  11. Hi All just a general enquiry I was recently travelling back home, when I spoted someone holding what I think was a Hand held speed camera and can only guess it was a video type. The guy holding it was not the police but had some writing on the back of his hi viz Yellow background black writing Has anyone seen these before ? and as it was not a police officer, is it likely that a fine with come through the post at some point if they were speeding?
  12. Im trying to find out who is responsible for maintain speed bumps - and what the position is regarding the maintenance of them. I know there are various rules about size etc - and this has I believe changed a number of times. But there are a number of bumps around where I live that are quite simply a joke. Some are made of block paving and tarmac, others are preformed things sunk into holes in the road and others are essentially formed lumps of tarmac. Many of these in a shocking state of disrepair and my car struggles with them even at like 10-15 MPH. Some have been very badly repai
  13. Hi, Firstly thanks for all the help and advice in the past, I have donated previously to help keep this fantastic resource continue it's good work. As the title says I was caught on speed camera on the M25 a few months back, I immediatly pleaded guilty as I knew on that day I was over the speed limit ( I am shocked by the amount though). You will read from my letter below why I was speeding, as I say in the letter it is no defence and completely agree it was wrong, it was the first time in years I had forgot my son's vital medicine, two large mistake's in a day
  14.

  15. i have just read an interesting article in the Daily Telegraph from the 10th June. a motorist was threatened with Court for doing 85 MPH by a Gatso camera in Staffordshire. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/06/10/questions-raised-over-accuracy-of-speed-cameras-after-driver-doi/?ref=yfp The case was dropped and the motorist had his legal fees of £2000 reimbursed after it was proved he was only doing 29.5MPH. On being questioned about the huge discrepancy which calls the whole use of speed cameras into question the Police said "This is the only time this type of error, to the best
  16. New to this forum and got a bit of a long winded story so please bear with me as any help or advice you could give would be greatly appreciated. In 2012 I had £400 loan through the speed credit website and like most had issues paying it back. This in turn made me seek help through Step Change (CCCS at the time) who helped me set up a debt management plan to pay off all of my various debts to other payday lenders,credit cards and bank overdraft. The loan from speed credit has caused me many issues over the past few years and even though I was in a debt management plan the
  17. Afternoon all. Just a quicky.... Just had a notification regarding the above. The notification arrived at least one month after the alleged offence. Out of interest, how long do the Police have to notify please? I think Ive read somewhere there is a set time limit? Have searched on here but cant seem to find any info on this. Cheers!
  18. I've received a speed ticket, via a speed camera. I have a named driver on my policy, and it was he who was driving the car. The form has asked me to name the driver (no problem to name him), but also wants his driving licence number, which I don't have, and he's not willing to give me. I'm not going to name myself as the driver, as it wasn't me who was driving. What do i do? Surely they will chase the named driver at his address (which I will provide to them)..is this so?
  19. Is there an offical minimum size for speed camera road signs please? My local authority, Preston, have started replacing them round here and they are almost half the size of the old ones and much more difficult to see!
  20. I'd be really grateful for a bit of information on what my options are now - here is my situation. I was caught speeding (38 in a 30) on 31st December- I thought it was 40 so it wasn't intentional :o) It was with West Midlands Police. I got the letter and admitted the offence and on 5th February got a letter offering me a speed awareness course. My personal situation was a bit difficult at this time - my husband had just moved out because of cheating leaving me in a difficult financial situation - debt :o( I am just getting back up on my feet. The letter said I had 120 d
  21. I think I already know there is nothing I can do about this, but just in case... Was driving at the top of the Liberty / Mall car park in Romford a couple of days ago. Lots of traffic heading out to the exit. Went over a very high plastic lump of a speed bump going as slow as possible over it, (1mph or less) and after the front wheels went over, it scraped the entire bottom of my car breaking the exhaust which now is blowing. My car isn't partially low, it has an after market suspension on there, but some new cars come that low. The speedbump is higher than the allowed 10cm, lo
  22. Why is it quicker to get a CAG page to load by double clicking ? This is not unique to CAG. If you experience slowish page loading on any site, if you double click quickly, the page is much quicker to load.
  23. I have tried to claim compensation from my local authority for damage to my car caused by badly worn speed cushions but they are saying that they can't consider my claim for general wear over a period of time, they will only consider a claim for a specific date and time of incident. My N/S Track Control Arm had failed after about 10 months of a previous one being fitted and approx 4000 miles causing the tyre to wear on the insde edge, I believe this has been caused by daily commuting along a certain stretch of road which has badly damaged speed cushions along its length,

  25. Hi All I have got caught going 57mph in a 50mph average speed camera in the UK. I have been reading online that a lot of these are not actually legal or enforceable, as they are quick, temporary, changeable and have not been passed through parliament. Is there any way I can check if this is linked to the camera I went through? I also read that they may not have a set speed limit in the legislation - i.e the camera's can be set between 50 and 60mph, and in this case they are not enforcable? Is there any way to check? It was on the M5
