Believe it or not in the 1920s there were about 7000 deaths a year on British roads - despite the fact there were only 1,000,000 vehicles and the speed limit was 20mph!!!!

A certin menber of these boards got done about 5 years ago in the RIB I had then, I thing he got clocked doing 28 knots in a 5 knot restricted area by the Mod Plod. After much arguing along the line of "and show me where on this chart it says a speed restricted area" they still gave his young son a warning with names address etc etc .
They then procceded to tell him that he can apply for an exemption from the QHM (lots of nuclear subs and stuff up here) to break the limit. The crazy thing is that the Sea Loch he was in is Fecking massive with the base on one side and him on the other

If you canít bet them join them that is why I have just placed an order for my own Gatso, cost £40k but if you can get £750k in two months seems like a good investment, now what new rib shall I order http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/s...es/4463961.stm

Take a look at this
http://www.guardian.co.uk/crime/arti...462183,00.html You and I would have received a ban for twice the speed limit, still Iím sure that the next time Iím late for a meeting the magistrates will take the same view Des

I like the 2nd one - what a bloody hypocrite!!!

A while ago a speed camera was placed near roadworks on the M4 past where the roadworks actually were. 2000 motorists were wrongfully convicted of speeding.
Only 3 people found out that they could complain and get their fines refunded and their points removed. The saftey camera partnership REFUSED to send letters out to the remaining motorists to advise them a mistake had been made!!!!!
The scumbags are quick enough to write to you when you get caught!!!

I now have the ultimate vehicle to beat the speed cameras. No it hasn't got 'stealth technology', it just doesn't go fast enough.

Anyway, I called in at the local tip today (loads of junk we are not taking to Scotland). I pulled up at the cubicle and the chap looked up at me in the cab, he was obviously wondering what the heck this army vehicle was doing there. As you all know you have to tell them what sort of waste you have, then they tell you which skip to put it in.

I looked him straight in the eye (he only had one) and said, "Nuclear waste mate!"

He stared at me quizically. I could see his brain ticking over as he thought, 'I don't think we take that here...?'

I let him stew for a few seconds.

"Only joking, general household waste really."

He breathed a sigh of relief. "Number 14 mate."

Off I went and dumped my plastic bags. Afterwards I thought, 'hey that was easy, maybe when I'm up in Scotland I could get a contract with Dounreay to dispose of their stuff'.

Look at this

I love this BBC Quote:-'By aiming at the wall and pulling the trigger whilst panning with the device we managed to get a reading of 58mph from the stationary wall - enough to get three points and a fine in urban areas' Des

The only real protection against police laser is a jammer and if their legality wasn't such a grey area, I'd have one tomorrow. The government also have plans to ban radar and laser detectors (which are different to jammers), although the gps based fixed camera detectors will remain legal.
