This is the point, in 22 years of driving this is a first offence, fast cars, towing, and HGV driving I've allways been alert to the road. Yes I'm bitter, and technology has caught me out . I dont care who you are, every one speeds sooner or later, its inevitable. Guesse I should accept that I'm gettin old, hehe, but watch out you guys, lots of us need our license for a living, and its getting easier each day to lose it ((was that ok codders, lose, (hehe)) I pride myself in being aware of the road, its conditions, and the possible prats around me that could land me in it if I wasn't looking over my shoulder, and checking that my next move is ok. So Randski when you get yours, don't say I didn't warn you. And if your one of those who do 20 everywhere , i'm having my headlamps fitted with pop up RPG's

Of course everbody speeds but if you're stupid enough to get caught - pay the consequencies.
Bigmuz7, with over 30 years of experience as a HGV/Roadcraft instructor I've never been convicted of speeding so you obviously weren't alert enough

I also drive a very fast (Jap) car

So are you saying a blue van at 200yds .. no markings looks like an obvious speed trap, I dont think so, you'll have your day sir, unless you have been modified by cyberdyne systems your luck is out. I will pay the consequences, I post these issues just to help and serve everyone else who wants to preserve their ticket. This current Government stops at nothing to swell its coffers, and as a responsible road user and company director who ploughs a lot into uk plc I resent dirty underhand tactics to whelch cash from law abiding careful people. If you have read the previous thred on this topic, I believe the camera beamed me 'outside' the zone, but I , nor anyone else can prove that. I am not a speeder, 22 years proves that.

If you were caught outside the zone then i really hope that you can go to court and prove itI don't wish anyone to be convicted wrongly. But again, IF you were breaking the speed limit, then take the consequencies.

I was always told at a roundabout if the exit you wish to take is past the 12 O'Clock mark then it is a right turn and you should indicate right.

I can understand people who are just too lazy to indicate at all but I can't see why so many people are not bothering to indicate right but ALWAYS indicate left to leave!!! It is bad enough on normal roundabouts but on a mini roundabout when some idiot just turns right in fron of you when you thought they were going straight on it's suicidal.

Too true Codders, they ought to bring out a camera to catch people at it
