    I have.

    Speaking to insurer a couple of weeks ago I was the first person to ring up that day who had no penalty points. That was at 2pm as well!

    Yeah I should have been doing 40mph oops single carriageway in truck. Personally I think it's more dangerous as people try and overtake more when your going that slow. However the law changes soon and we'll be able to 50mph.

    We don't have a point system. I know France has point license to.
    In Belgium they take your license for a few weeks if things are to bad.

    Only ever had 3pts in 49 years (I had forgotten a 40 limit had been recently dropped to 30 about 20 years ago). I consider myself very, very lucky not to have been caught since! :Whistle:
    Don't think it can last with these new stealth cameras though.

    3 points in 2005 the only ones since passing my test in 1994.

    Was in Preston driving in what had all the hallmarks of a 40 limit in a heavy rain storm.... I thought there was a bit lightning about then glanced in my mirror again and saw the horrible yellow box......

    My impression has always been that you are allowed 10% + 2 mph over the speed limit before you are prosecuted. This must no longer be the case or else you were really unlucky.

    Tempting fate but I have never had any speeding points since passing my test in 1973. However, as someone who is driving in unfamiliar places a lot you have to be so vigilant. The other think is that my satnav shows the limit for the road I am on, but it is not always right. I am sure that that would not be accepted as a defence though!

    Oh this rosser gave me a lecture in the back of his Volvo, read my rights to STFU etc checked all my details and didn't get a drive awareness course. West Yorkshire police have zero tolerance on speed. where North Yorkshire is more open to a debate.

    I check this website every day to see where these cash cow rascals are sitting and avoid the area. West Yorkshire Casualty Reduction Partnership
