Codders limit, ok. This one I disregard however. The road used to be derestricted, there used to be fewer cars on the roads. More cars = more noise. Solutions: plant more trees, or lower the speed limit. The road outside my house in Kent has dropped from 60 to 40, as the increase in noise from the increased traffic was unbearable. The traffic was not there when my parents bought the house 25 years ago. I think that's a valid reason to lower a speed limit.

Just my view, and I'm damn sure others won't agree!!

I don't think there is anything accidental about any of the speeding mentioned in this thread - I think most forum members that have admitted to speeding (Bob included) knew exactly what they were doing!

Surely you haven't all forgotten what it was like to be 19?!?

It's easy to point the finger at younger drivers but the law was a lot more forgiving when we were that age... no camera's, higher speed limits and you'd have to get 12 points before you were banned, not 6!!!

My license was clean for 19 years until a hiden camera caught me on my bike last year and I went from having a clean license to half way to a ban in one brief journey - it's very hard to constantly stick to 30mph on a bike designed to go in excess of 165mph (this being the main reason she's up for sale )

I, like everyone else, get p*ssed off when a boy racer hammers past me at 70mph in a 30 limit but if Bob was only going 45mph or so then as an inexperienced driver I think he should be given the benifit of the doubt and let his old man take the points (provided he doesn't have any of his own of course). As others here have previously said, as long as someone owns up and pays I'm sure it won't be questioned.

As an inexperienced driver he shouldn't be doing 45 in a 30-ANYONE doing that speed in a 30 limit is a fkn liability but an inexperienced driver doing it is a bigger one.

That B-road btw, the damn woman moved in and then decided she didn't like the noise-it's the only house for about a mile and the road is nearly always empty......just goes to show, it's not what you know...

just one query!! Why do we manufacture cars to break the speed limits?? I drive an m3 with 320 bhp as standard it has a cut out at 155 (found that out on a track of course!!!) why dont we manufacture cars that do a limit of 70mph?? and capable of towing our toys!!! (oh and those wonderfull caravans!!) have a cracking gadget which u set to the speed limit of the road as soon as you hit it it makes a huge annoying beeping noise but hey it works!! need a button like the f1 cars have in the pits one for 20, 30, 40,50,60,70 would be a kool steering wheel then!!

Just watched CSI Miami that Rocket Propelled Grenade launcher wow if only there was an open season on caravans , I could make Cornwall worth livin in again.

I have had a chuckle here tonight

first the thread about 4WD and all the justification for owning them

Then in this thread all the bolockings for doing over 30 and keeping the children safe .

So a 4 wd should be doing 20mph where other cars can do 30 fair enough .

Hey don't mind me I ride an Aprilia 1000 so they all hate me .

hehehehe.....It's always open season on caravans

I found the best weapon to use against them is a fully loaded skip lorry-they barely slow down on the way through...

Tim, the question to ask Bob is...

Is he an adult or a child?

Go figure.
