My husband has just got a letter saying he is going to be prosecuted for speeding. He was 6MPH over limit,allegedly, he says he was not so we are going to fight this on a matter of principle. Thanks to CAG I am not afraid of courts now but would like some honest advice.He had been driving for 41 years and has always had a clean licence. He said that he saw the mobile speed camera which clocked him. If you think we will be wasting our time please be honest and say so. regards Hils

There's also a site called something like 'pepipoo.com' or co.uk - not sure - that specialises in speeding/parking fines.

No friendly mod, so you'll have to make do with me! :lol: Thread moved to the traffic forum.

 

The site Dave refers to is PePiPoo: Helping the motorist to get justice, Hilary and they have a wizard you fill in with the details and based on your answer, it gives you the best way to proceed. Good forum to use. ;-)

Guest interesting

Bookworm and/or other mods.

This is a forum about Parking Tickets/Traffic Wardens, why is this message still in here and even more to the point, why after seeing it havent you moved it to somewhere more appropiate ? (surely the website, if you have moved it will remove the message thread as well !!)

Surely as Mods, you understand the role and/or get the website doing what it should.

Since at the moment, we haven't a forum for traffic itself, this is the closest relevant one, which is why I have moved it in here from where it was (in the Bear Garden). If in the future, the forum owners decide to create a traffic section, then I will move this type of thread in it. Thank you for your concern.

I think you have competition for your job as moderator!

Stopped for Speeding

 

An French priest is driving to Paris and gets stopped for speeding in Lyon.

The gendarme smells alcohol on the priest's breath and then sees an empty wine bottle on the floor of the car.

 

He says,"Sir, have you been drinking?"

 

"Just water," says the priest.

 

The gendarme says, "Then why do I smell wine?"

 

The priest looks at the bottle and says, "Good Lord! He's done it again!"

 

Apologies to the OP

...Just couldn't resist the co-incidence to previous Posts in the Thread!...lol...:D

Oh, gods, but then I have to nitpick because private tickets aren't offences as they're not criminal, and some Councils operate under decriminalised schemes...sorry Auntie Bookie... :o

 

PS - why does 'interesting' even care?? :D

Rivetting though this debate is, it doesn't anawer the OP's original question.

 

Speeding is an absolute offence; there is no leeway - you are breaking the law at 1 mph over the posted limit. To be 'clocked' at 36 mph, I would suspect that the car's speedometer was reading welll above the limit.

 

Police guidelines are not to prosecute for speeds below Limit+10%+2 mph (ie 35 in a 30; 46 in a 40, etc.). However, they are only guidelines.

 

Bookie's first post on the thread supplies the best advice: go over to Pepipoo and ask the experts there. I would hazard that most speeding cases are won on an official screw-up in procedure rather than actual measurement.

Well it has taken me ages to find this thread! I thought it had been deleted, thank you all for your advice, We bought a rahter nice Jag at the begining of the year and after all the abuse we have had and now this I dont think it is worth having something "different" Life was a lot more simple when we had a beat up old car. I am not sure what we are going to do, hubby now thinks he ought to take it on the chin and just pay up.
