Speeding tickets...

Yeap...think i mightve been caught out Doing about 78mph in the outside lane of a dual carriageway with another car next to me in the left lane. Hoping it missed me...but im not sure! How long does the ticket take to come through & when can i relax?

He was parked right up behind a big motorway sign so you couldnt see the van till you were passing it with the box tucked just to the side of it!

it takes about 2 weeks,
at 78 you'll be close.
have you ever noticed how far out you speedo is when you have your satnav on?
as a rule of thumb it's 10%+2 which would be 79mph...

stricly speaking It can arrive anytime, but you must receive it within 14 days of the date of the offence, and if you dont .. you start to have grounds for questioning it .. if your clock showed 78 .. and the limit was 70 (you didnt say) you would have been doing about 73-74 unless youve fitted fancy alloys with different diameter tyres to the factory spec .. either way .. 73 or 74 is contestable, and arguable, so they may decide not to issue a ticket if they think theres a chance of a failed conviction .. dont get your hopes up yet though, there are some miserable b@st@rd speed enforcement units out there

If you where in a 70 I reckon you should be fine

If you were in your Tundercat you'll probably go down for it

^^^ yes Peter but this is another common problem .. like towing trailers where the limit is 60 .. it which case its 3 points for sure .. theres a big problem of van weights some being able to do 70 and others only 60 on a DC even if the limit is 70
