    The law is probably enforced AT 10% + 2mph. You could quiz them on when the camera was last calibrated and wether appropriate signage was within the minimum required distance. Other than that you probably don't have much come-back...

    I don't think you have any wiggle room. They don't have to show the driver as if the owner of the vehicle can't say who was driving, the driver can be held responsible.

    ^^^Spot on......................only option is wife/gf was driving.... their points = happy days lol

    Usually now though, if your caught doing on the edge of the tolerance they should be offering you a driver's education day, cost £80-100, with 0 points added.

    My wife was "nicked "doing 34mph in a 30 zone by Cleveland Police.
    I understand the plus 2mph is discretionary .

    Sorry, but its a "fair cop"

    I wouldn't go down the Crown Court route. People tend to think this as the legal costs escalate thinking the prosecution will pull out. What people don't figure is the fines are higher, sometimes unlimited at Crown.

    It depends on the force and the Police. Every case can be taken on it's own basis.

    form set off admitting I was the driver just for fear of being taken to court as the reg keeper. Now they are taking it to court anyway as I said in a letter that I was signing it under duress????? weird!
