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[:(]

Grez, With 130mph in a 70 and 57 in a 30, I hope you don't drive near me or my family. I don't want to get on my high horse, and I am not whiter than white, but I am glad you got a ban. 85 on a motorway, I see no problem depending on conditions, but 57 in a 30 is pretty unacceptable. Let the flaming begin.

not sure where you got 130 in a 70 from pal
