    Drive slower then mate! :)

    It is annoying I know, I got done doing 35 in a 30 this year. But 3 times in a year is getting risky!!

    Your work depends on it, so worth just keeping an eye on speedo for the sake of your job. Mine taught me a lesson...but it aint easy, I have to constantly be aware cos soooo easy to creap over 30. Hard luck mate.

    I got pulled yesterday, I was driving home and there was a guy doing 27/30mph on a long stretch of road. There was nothing coming down the opisite side. So I took over him I was going about 40 after I took him. Next thing I look in my mirror and theres the blue flashing lights haha. The police were behind me when I took him. I never even noticed.

    I apologised about 10 times during our conversation, he let me off with it though.

    Hold on a minute I thought you ha a 20% leniency due to the inaccuracies of vehicle speedos

    Therefore thy can only prosecute you over 36mph

    Mark!


    I am young and new ish(passed in may 2011)

    I was cought driving 37 in a 30 back in aprill 2012

    Did a speed awareness course and that tought me a lesson.(so no points either if I speed again then ill get points, new drivers can get 6 points then there banned)

    Only ever speed on routes where there is no police speed check signs or speed camera signs! :p

    No sympothy for you, you should keep an eye on speedo, like windyman says your work depends on your van surprised your not banned for cought speeding 3 times in a year mate.

    I thought it was 10% plus one or two miles over?

    Which would make it 35 tops..
