    Caught speeding

    Bugger! Was travelling to Boston on the A52 last weekend, following the obligatory slow moving lorries, at about 45/50. Came to a nice long straight and decided to overtake.

    Now, I had noticed a police van parked up on the opposite side of the road, but had assumed that travelling away from the van it: A) wouldn't read my speed and B) as I was overtaking, and had returned to 60 after the lorries, going over the limit was generally okay.

    I've been offered 3 points and 60.00, by way of a fixed penalty, and on the face of it, it sounds like a good offer as I was clocked at 77 in a 60.

    Do you have any suggestions on where I could go for advice, as I'm sure I recall reading somewhere that exceeding the speed limit whilst overtaking was okay, so long as you returned back to the roads limit after the maneauver??? Maybe I was on the wine that day [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

    Well, it's bad start to my weekend anyway [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    Cheers fellas.

    Sounds as though it's 60squid and 3 pionts then. What a bugger, especially after having a clean licence for about 10 years!! Spose' it was only a matter of time tho' [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Post your situation here there is alot of useful advice and people who know what they are talking about... but atleast it was only 3 points and 60, could have been a court appearance.

    If the lorry's were doing the 40mph they should have been doing you could safely get past at 60mph, but they drive at 50 -55mph all the time and get away with it making it immpossible to get past them safely at 60! I only hope the wagons doing 45-50mph got done too then.
