I had 7 points but been clean for 5years. I did get caught on xmas day though! The letter arrived on 29th!
It says a speed awareness course would be offered if the speed is 10% of the limit plus 9mph. This was for a 60mph zone - I got caught at 71mph so should be ok for the course.

That's why i had asked who'd been charged. .

I've read about a few people getting substantial fines. One guy got around a £2500 fine for 66 in a 40mph. A lawyer offered his services and appealed and got it down to £600 or so.
OK - To be pedantic, most people subject to court proceedings for speeding offences receive a summons as oppose to being charged by the Police.

Either way, a lot of articles that were published nearer the time failed to point out that the new rules wouldn't apply for the majority of offences.

Happy New Year :-)
It's not like you to pick fights and get all pedantic. I'm sure most people understood my question without having to spell it out and pick an unnecessary argument.

Sounds like 2018 has got off to a flyer for you. Happy new year.
What a joyless git you are!

Thank you. It means a lot coming from you.

You did say the other day was no point in picking an argument with me after posting a lot of drivel. Then today another simple post that everyone else understood and you're doing it again.

You just can't help yourself. Asperger's syndrome?

Just please stop quoting me and picking arguments for no reason at all. It doesn't help how often you are wrong and how badly it affects you. Even when you called me a liar and turned out to be completely wrong I haven't held a grudge at all.

Move on and stop taking everything personally.

Thank you both for your contributions so far.

I didn't realize that the 4-6 points band b penalty is only if there is a court summons. As i have never had points before I think I should be offered the course/ get 3 points.

I can live with that, but definitely will be using Waze for every journey from now on.

5 points here. 86 in a 60. £200 fine. Court summons. Plead guilty by post which according to their response knocked £100 off the fine and 1 point.

Years ago I got a hefty £258 and five points for 46 in a 30. Not a built up area, quiet road heading out of town. Got a summons and pleaded guilty by letter.
That was 9 years ago so quite a hefty fine for then.

There's a guy I know at work who was handed a £900 fine a couple of months ago, I don't recall exactly what speed he was doing but it was somewhere around 90mph on a motorway.

Read on Twitter this morning a post from NW Traffic police that had a vid showing a guy doing an average of 147Mph on the M62 near Liverpool. This was an average!

That’s gotta be a custodial sentence surely?

It won't be custodial but will be a trip to court and likely ban and big fine :D

Take your own advice and don't take yourself too seriously.

Have 6 points:
First 3 were for 36 in a 30 but will expire in a few months
Got my second 3 for 97 in a 70 (luckily was slowing down as apparently over 100mph is straight to court)

It's too easy done.

Notice of intended prosecution has to be served within 14 days of the offence. Is the car registered at your home address and is it up to date with DVLA?
