Drivers can avoid speeding tickets by.....

#1
by changing lanes

The Home Office admitted last night that drivers can avoid being caught the by hi-tech 'SPECS' cameras which calculate a car's average speed over a long distance.

...doing over 164Mph past the cameras as they can't get a photo at that speed.

Blaming the missus and getting her to take the fine and penalty points!

Or by having with no Driving License, Road Tax, MOT, Insurance AND Number Plates from a different make/colour car like the Albanian cnut who ran into me in London. (He was an unregistered illegal immigrant as well) He was only arrested by the police as he was unable to drive away, and was politely asked by my mate not to walk away from the scene of the accident. Good job I am fully comp, with no claims protection.

Since this is in the Daily Mail, are you willing to test this theory admag and report back to Arrse...

Personally the speed limit is generally common sense... proves little to bomb on a motorway contraflow...

If you dont speed, you wont have to moan!.


Are you a cop?
That is the sort of crap you hear from people who drive at 70mph in the outside lane, whilst driving beside an eejit doing the same speed in the middle lane...rolling roadblock anyone.

Speed on it's own doesn't cause accidents, not taking due care and attention to your surroundings, and using the wrong speed for your environment causes accidents. TRL government research supports this theory but how many due care and attention cameras have you seen? You don't see binlids on the motorway doing 45mph getting done for causing an obstruction. But do 85 on a clear motorway and you are now the new whipping boy for the treasury/insurance companies. Goodbye £60 and hello three points, or in reality £60 + three points + increased insurance. Ever notice that insurance companies don't ask what your points were for. And before you start, Yes I am Bitter! One law fits all should be the case.

Ditch the cameras, get more traffic cops and have insurance and MOT discs made a statutory requirement for all windscreens. Then get rid of every illegal uninsured, un MoT'd, un licenced driver off our roads.

If you closed a stretch of the motorway full of cvehicles one morning and made every vehicle produce their paperwork you would have 20% of those vehicles or their drivers with some form of offence. 1 in 5

Alcohol causes more deaths each year than driving ever will!

I think I just went off on one..............apologies!

No I am a father who was in the same car as his baby daughter when a cnut who was doing 70mph in a 30mph streatch of road, lost control and hit us head on!.

The problem is when people go out of areas they know, I know the location of all cameras where I live. When I drive somewhere on holiday or to visit someone I'm like a "nervous nellie" at the first sign of a camera.

Hmmmm Nasty!
As I said , due care and attention, wrong speed for environment!
If you don't mind me asking what was the outcome? Were you and your daughter able to walk away from that one. Was the Cnut able to walk away, Is he still able to walK? Do you need a hand with some anger redistribution?

Everyones cander on any topic is shaped by what they have read, seen, heard, or experienced. Talking from my own experience I have no doubt that I am an above average driver(I have the qualifications to prove it). My instructors, passengers , friends and colleagues agree with me on what I am about to post.

That professional drivers should not be held to the same standards as everyone else. The driving standards are already higher for an HGV C+E, or Biker than the average Joe who has done ten lessons in a car and nothing else. But they still have only 12 points until they are banned under the totting up sh1te that this Government has introduced. What about a driver that spends 90% of his working day on the road. Should he have 12 points or 24 to recognise the extra two tests he has taken. To even it out offences committed whilst driving larger vehicles should carry a larger points balance or greater fine.

No system is perfect ut this one is crap!

I had three broken ribs, my daughter thankfully only sustained a few cuts due to broken glass. The cnut had no tax or insurance, received a few across the face before the Traffic Police showed up, they took that into consideration and mysteriously suffered amnesia and had no knowledge of the assualt :wink:

I know he was successfully prosecuted but dont know what the outcome was.

RAII helps if kept upto date but not speeding and the application of road craft is also the way forward to a safe arrival at destination.

Remove rear number plates - remove rear lights - Enjoy hours of hooning down empty dual carriageways!

- according to local press anyway.
Or do like some kids did in aussie land, make a plate up the same as the sneaky beaky camera van and drive past it speeding 32 times so the van got all the summonds!! :D

A camera cannot tell if he had insurance or tax so slight flaw in your grinding axe, a police patrol can find this out if they check!
