    Caught speeding

    A few months ago I was caught speeding by a mobile van in Welsh Wales after leaving a track day. The police sent me a Notice of Intended Prosecution through the post which I duly filled in and returned, I have waited ever since for my court date to come through.

    I've just come back from a weekend away watching 24 hour power boat racing as well as other things, to find a letter on my mat stamped "Heddlu Gwent Police". My heart sank :-(

    Opened the letter, which goes something like this:

    Dear Mr Tomsett

    I am writing to inform you of the progress regarding:

    Offence(s): EXCESS SPEED LIMIT

    The evidence has been carefully considered and at this stage it has been decided to take no further action. However, if additional evidence comes to light, we reserve the right to reconsider the position.

    Blah blah blah

    I'm over the FOOKING moon, I was easily looking at a big fine and a bucket of points, possibly a short ban.

    nice one Kevin. Mate of mine was pulled doing approx 120 in a 50 on the south circular (on a bike) and got let off too. Sure it was 5am, his luggage had caught fire and he had 25 mins to get to Dover for a ferry, but for a copper to show such humanity was pretty amazing.

    Humanity and police do not go together.
