    …damn.

    Why am i having such a bad week? It really upsets me. Why does the flyover by staples corner in London have a 30mph limit! I was doing 58mph. I'm lucky to have only got a fixed penalty notice i spose. The cops were quite nice actually, i wasn't arsey…knew i was going to fast.

    Yours frustratingly

    do we get Octopus pRon for speeding as well now

    58 in a 30, bugger me thats pushing the realms of sense!

    because there's a big circular sign with 30 on it,the speed limit on both sides of that piece of dual carriageway is 30 so why you think nearly double that speed is acceptable is beyond me

    It's a 3 lane carriagway so easy to do that sort of speed there

    unlucky. I got hit 3 times in the space of year back in 2004 – 2005. Now I spend more time looking out for speed cameras than I do the road in front of me. Crazy.

    so probably an indicated 65?
    30mph over the limit would be a ( pretty much ) automatic ban. i'd say you were very lucky.

    two lanes over the bridge,unless you count the sliproads………

    no speed camera,would have been mobile unit

    Probably because you wern't arsey you only got the fixed penalty

    Oh – can I join in with the "burn him" sentiments?

    It's easy to do 40 (or even more) in most 30 limits, yet somewhow I manage to restrain myself.

    Nonsense. ACPO guidlines say you should be in court for that one.

    The pedal next to the accelerator is the brake.

    I got done for speeding years ago on the way to the festival of speed at goodwood hall. Oh the irony.

    There's a few flyovers there and one of them is only 2 lane. I used to work at Brent Cross in Olympus Sports so it was a regular journey I made……I thought that particular one was a 40mph though although I've not been that way for a while.

    Buddy of mine was followed by police travelling to Fort Bill doing 120mph for a sustained period. He got 6 points and a £400 fine. Not sure that speeding is being treated as seriously as it might be.

    Do you know where he got stopped?

    as i once heard on a radio phone in,

    'It is a speed limit, so it is not flexible and going over it has no excuse, if you say the limit for me sleeping with your wife/girlfriend/partner was nil would it be alright if i was just over it?'

    Got done twice in 10 days recently.

    Paid the fine on the second one and the courts forgot to add the points to either my license or the DVLA computer.

    I hope that this suitably annoys all the people straining to read their computer monitors from atop their high horses on here.

    The vast majority of traffic offences can be categorised as failing to spot the police. Taking that onboard what else have you failed to spot if you missed the big **** off luminous thing?

    a mate had to go to court for speeding at 103.2 mph on the m5…i dont no how he got away with that…i thought 30mph over the limit was a ban for a year…

    Thought you might be interested to know that following the UK Government's Freedom of Information Act you can now get access to ALL speed camera offences registered in the last 12 months.
    Did you know that every time your car goes past a speed camera, even 1mph over the set limit, it is registered and put on a database? You
    only get a ticket if you are way over the limit or, (this is the bit that I didn't know) if you receive over 10 near misses, you will be
    classed as a serial offender and get a ticket the next time you go just over the limit.
    This is why you hear of people being done for 34mph in a 30mph limit area, whilst others doing 39 do not. You can check what has been
    registered against your vehicle at the following web address:

    http://www.i-database.co.uk

    Just enter your car registration. If there is any data on your vehicle you can click on the camera window to see a copy of the photograph.

    For a laugh, what's the fastest anyone's been on a public road?

    Me = an indicated 160mph which probably equates to 140mph allowing for speedo innacuracy.

    I was about to start a big rant when suddenly the penny dropped 😆

    stuarte_c, you so-and-so! How many times will I fall for that, yeek!

    i did 155, so about 140/145, however went out to my car the next day to see a huge puddle of fluid under it, £1100 bill ( i still have the bill somewhere) for a new head gasket and skim, as well as some other bits as well, was fun and luckily had the cash to pay for it at the time,

    I failed to spot the big **** off luminous thing because the first I saw of it was when I came over the brow of the hill, at exactly the same moment it caught me.
