    Gutted for you mate. I am sure you are supposed to tell them now unfortunately. It will put the premium up a little.
    If you have an accident or a claim and they find out you havent told them then they will void your policy and you will be in the sh!t next time round with them.
    Where did you get caught?

    Totally agree with Rob about this. Tell them before something happens and they try and shaft you by not paying out...

    Unlucky mate, let us know what they say.

    Rich.

    Quit the sympathy guys... 98mph is easily 105+mph on the speedo and is not someting that is done by accident.

    The points and penalty are fair for the speed IMO, I would have expected worse.

    Did your case go to court? I presume so... Insurance renewal depends much on the conviction code... SP is not usually so bad

    My friend got caught doing 100.5mph and received a 2 month BAN plus fines...

    Yes I'd say you were very lucky not to get a ban. I'd say, from my extensive experience, that what you received would have been normal for a motorway but not an A road. 5 points is no worse than 3 points in the totting up process, i.e. you still have 2 more lives left (if you had a clean licence before, which I guess you must have had for them to have been that lenient). The fine is always 3x worse than a fixed penalty when you have to go to court.
    I'd say all round that you got a good result, nice one, well done.

    True - I think we have all done it and perhaps worse... However it is a bit feeble to moan about being punished for it when caught.

    At least be bold enough to take the rap for being at fault without bitching about it.

    [/ QUOTE ]

    Too true - David, and totally agree.

    You do the crime, etc etc

    If I were caught doing xxx mph then I'd take the rap.

    Speeding is not big and not clever, but I do it, and so do most.

    Dont think he was really moaning, just asking about the insurance consequences.

  18. That is an SP50 which is what I have, can add anything up to £100 to insurance depending on how old it is etc.

    Sorry to act dim, but I have just had a letter through form Notts police asking if I was the driver etc. etc as they have photographic / video evidence and "intend" to take it forward. I never saw a Flash (was dark) or know what speed I was doing in a 30mph zone (it didn't say on the initial letter), however are you saying if I dont recieve owt in next 2 weeks (and 3 days) - they have decided not to take it any further ?
