Grez - reckon you got away lightly mate.
I was caught last year doing 136MPH on the motorway down to Folkstone - 6AM, empty road, not a car in sight and newly resurfaced road.
Cops stopped me and said it was a good job I slowed down to 100MPH-ish cause their cars can only do 130MPH and they were losing me [8D]
Well did all the paperwork, told me it would have to go to magistrates court as over 100MPH, I was kaking myself, ban inevitable, not a nice start to my holiday. That was August last year - had nothing since.
How lucky am I [
Go on, someone tell me there's still a chance I'll get done [}
] Never had a single point on my licence either - not in 15 years of driving!
Never drive anything like that fast anymore, 90 my limit nowadays - nothing like cops/speeding/magistates/ban/fine/points to chill down the right foot.
You can't get done now as there is a 6 month time limit for the prosecution to be heard at court. I'd say you've been very lucky!!
Ive had some other luck in the past,i'd only been driving a few months and got three points for a bold tyre, then a few weeks later i got caught speeding by a copper with a handheld gun, 57 in a 30, got told i was going to fast for a fixed penalty which would of resulted in me having to take my test again, but instead told i was going to be summons to caught, luck would have it, it never came through, and that was over five years ago, got me this time tho[
