    None for 10 years, then 6 points in one go in February of this year. :sadlike:

    @Katy, I was just wondering, how does 13 points effect your insurance premium, and whats the response of the person taking your details down?

    ive theyve seen you speeding and they catch you, your in the **** anyway.....

    if you KNOW you can get away, and they wont get close enough to take your plates, then why the hell not give it a shot?

    good man.

    0 points for me still, wont turn the key unless my road angel is plugged in first.

    that said, having a camera/laser detector is still not a licence to speed..... its all about observation, ive seen SO many people pulled over my the undercover VRS cars around here..... i wont ever overtake an octavia unless its got a wife and kids in it.....

    What a stupid attitude! Its this kind of sh*te that puts the rest of us in danger! What happens if someone, while driving like a tw*t to get away from the police, has an accident and hurts or, god forbid, kills someone? They'd be in far, far less **** if they just pulled over accepted what was coming and therefore not recklessly endanger other peoples lives simply because they didn't want a few points and a fine!

    There is absolutely, totally and utterly no way of "knowing" you can get away!

    There's a black one that prowls up and down the A50 in Stoke/Longton. Saw it tonight again, there had been an accident in/near the Meir tunnel and it was stopping traffic from joining the A50.

    sorry if my post came across as very 'boy racer'

    but i believe in SOME situations, it is worth it.....

    for example, comming home one night, around 1am, in my hillclimb preped mini, near my home in cornwall, i came around a corner, doing around 75mph in a 60 zone, and i cut across the white line to smooth out the bend (obviously i could see round the bend, and wasnt doing anything dangerous)

    whilst i was straddled across the white line, a police car came round the next corner the other way, and saw me going quite fast, straddling the white line.

    as we passed, i looked in my mirror, to see his brake lights and sirens come on, there was a turning point just after the corner he was approaching.

    at this point, i was doing around 80mph, whilst he was still doing roughly 40 in the OTHER direction.

    i knew the roads very well, knew the police car to be a standard 1.6 focus, and knew my mini to be almost untouchable locally along said roads, when driven well.

    by the time he had turned around, i would have been a good 1/2 a mile ahead, with a large 3 way junction approaching, all exits going into forrest/high sided hedge row roads, so obviously if i got down one of them before he reached the junction, i wouldnt be found.

    i made the split decision to go for it, shifted down to 3rd, and shot down the smallest of the 3 roads, driving briskly, but not stupidly. i got back to my house, teared into the drive, and manged to wedge the mini behind my mums car, before running inside.

    5 minutes later the policeman knocked on our door, he had recognisd the car to be my highly tunned mini, and knew where we lived (its a small village in cornwal-everyone knows everyone)

    when he asked what i had been doing all evening, i told him id been watching TV. there was nothing he could do, so he just left.

    the end.


    im not saying that a high speed blue light chase involving silly manouvers around a crowded city is ever going to be wise, and looking back, i doubt he could have done anything at all having not been able to record my speed at all, but i didnt want to risk it, and it was quite clear at the time that i could get home unseen.

    if speeding fines were really issued for saftey reasons, there wouldnt be nearly as many of them given out at all. everyone deserves a chance to explain themselves, sadly, the Law doesnt give us that chance....

    lets face it, everyone had driven stupidly at times, and if you THOUGHT there was a chance you could easily get away with a speeding ticket, you would, wouldnt you?

    this was a few years ago now, i dont actually feel the need to drive the audi as fast as the mini, even though its quicker in a straight line.

    There's no option for "none" because no ones interested in what people haven't got.
