chaps,

Just went through a speed trap at mac 10, there are no pedestrians on this bit of road as it's a duel carriageway but it was a 40 and i was doing erm quite fast...maybe 86mph......am i banned ?

Me mate says that there's a web site where they have to advertise that they are putting a speed trap there and if they haven't it's null void...

am i busing it to work from now on?

i was always under the impression that if you double the speed limit then its an instant ban m8.

i may be wrong.

was this a static camera then ?

yes mate, plastered all over it.....well the back end did any way....

if you can imagine a duel carriageway dropping down hill on a massive gradient.....sitting in a bloody 2 liter SRi, the pedal hit the metal....might fit one of them door stops to the bottom of me accelerator to stop me going over 23 mph.....

My mate tried the 23mph stop. No good for him though he ended up using pedals accompanied with a frame and wheels.The only speeding he did for a while was freewheeling downhill,he said he reminded him of when he was a kid,oh yeah i thought tell me that the next time you are going uphill.

Good luck against the trap...not that i,m agreeing to you speeding, it,s that i don,t like the bone idle b.....ds either,specially the traffic ones.

My mate reckoned it wasn,t the ban etc that bothered him,it was the insurance afterwards. I,ve not seen him speeding for a long time, those hills must have cured him. Besides i used to pass him by laughing that didn,t help.

if it was a speed trap mate you will be banned by the court as its more the double the speed limit of under 50mph. obv double the 50mph limit you get banned anyway..

You might be lucky though and your speedo will be out so reading 80 you were probley doing around 67ish.. ok still over the limit but not a ban. speedos have to read over by law.
