Let us know the re quote...i am waiting a court date for a 61 in a 30 (dual carrigway, and thought it was a 40) sitting and waiting....anticipating... I used to have aclean licence
Got some advice for you, friend of mine caught doing exactly the same 61 in a 30.
Did you know you can plead guilty by post and not have to go to court? That's what my friend did, but when you get the papers there's a box that allows you to plead mitigating circumstances. Take time over it, helps if it was a clear road, no pedestrians, good weather, good view ahead, basically anything that would lessen the serverity of an accident at 61 as opposed to 30. Clean licence helps your case too.
He got 4 points and ?120 fine, no ban, no court hearing.
Thanks for the advice i will consider that course.
Milkfloat - i belive 136 was on a clear road and 57 in a 30, whilst speeding will kill you no quicker than being hit by a car doing 30...as for me? dual carriage way, hardly any traffic and no annotation as to speed limit.
I reckon that nobody on this site is in a position to judge anybody else when it comes to speeding. We all do it, and it is wrong regardless of by how much.
I will take my medicine like a good boy, but just think what you are doing next time you do 35 in a 30, or even 85 in a 70, you are still putting yourself and everybody else around you at risk, especially when half the people on the road are not even able to drive within the required speed limit.
clip clop milkfloat. A taste for the melodromatic? once again i do not dissagree with you. I am sure that lessons have been learnt. Its just the hard line you tow my friend. Had someone been injured things would be different, and you would be justified. At this point your letting your training on the Saudi magistrates circuit cloud your judgement (joke)
(The bald tyre was prior to 57 in a 30, not the land speed record attempt if i am reading it correctly)
