M6 56 in a 40


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I was wondering what peoples thoughts / advice is for my following situation.

Unfortunately, I have been caught speeding on the m6 - 56mph in a temporary 40 zone. I did not realise that the speed for the current stretch I was on, was reduced to a 40, I knew that some parts was bought down to 50mph but not 40. Ultimately, it is on own fault for not being more focused at the time. 

I was wondering whether anyone caught doing similar speeds over the limit have been offered a speed awareness course. My letter states that the records show I have not met the criteria for a speed awareness course, which I feel is harsh given this is my first offence & the threshold for consideration is upto 53mph as stated below,


our speed narrowly exceeded the limit and falls within the guidelines set out by the National Police Chief Council (NPCC) up to:

  • 31 mph in a 20 mph area
  • 42 mph in a 30 mph area
  • 53 mph in a 40 mph area.

Could I argue that my speedometer is not entirely accurate as such I should be considered in the 53mph bracket above and considered for a speed awareness course?

I think so, but someone else should confirm this.

  • dx100uk changed the title to M6 56 in a 40

the camera calibration issue has again and again been proved as immaterial in motorway situations, which are not a handheld device and sadly one of these useless Freeman of the land twaddle things that regularly gets bounded around.

Just been caught doing 40 in a 30 by a camera van.

It appears that while I was on holiday, they implemented a temporary 30 speed limit.

Even though 10 miles an hour over and bang to rights, been offered the speed awareness course rather than three points

Take the 3 points and fine.

It will be as much use as indicators on a submarine trying to put forward any mitigating circumstances in court.

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!
