If those numbers were showing on the speedometer you have some reason to be hopeful. Good luck.

I saw a tactic I’ve not seen before today on the A65 in North Yorkshire. Two vans parked about 500 yards apart.

I assume their thinking is that once you think you’re out of the line of sight of one you have just passed, some people feel safe to put their foot down, thinking there won’t be another just round the next bend. Well, today there was. Thankfully, I was obeying the speed limit, as I always do. But I bet it caught one or two out.

Indicated or on the SatNav?!

Is that force under the ‘10% + 9’ rule? If so, nay bother I’d imagine.

As a guy I knew that was a police officer said....

“You don’t know what buffer was decided upon that day. You don’t know if they are just getting started or packing up. Or if they’re having a break”.

So in short, I’d not worry too much. Never fun though is it.

Sneaky rotten ba5tards!

That reminds me of the classic ambush. Detonate bomb close to safe cover area. Everyone runs to safe cover area. Where there's another bomb waiting.

Sneaky indeed. Saw this on the A74 many years ago.

It was speedo

You get 10% plus 2 mph
40 mph speed limit you'll start getting fines at approx indicated 49 mph plus or minus 1mph

NIP arrived. The rule did not apply. The letter said 47 at 40 mph!
Hope the next one does not turn up. It was a bit harsh..

But to be convicted of 47 in a 40 you must have been doing an indicated 50mph, plus or minus 1 mph

I hope the 2nd NIP does not turn up and I get away with a speed awareness course.

I agree it was above the limit, the road was empty apart from the trap 😭
Really gutted!

Just shows how harsh the unit can get if they play hard !

Bennyy, different cars have different tolerances for the speedo under-reading, no two are the same. So pointless making statements about what people’s clocks will be indicating at any given speed.

My Cayman was insanely accurate, the Boxster well out. So no point making subjective comments.

My formula earlier on was for at what speed ‘awareness courses’ will be offered, apologies. So 86 represents the last speed on a motorway where you have any chance of not getting points in most parts of the country.

My police officer pal said they discuss before going out the the tolerance that they’ll accept drivers over the speed limit before prosecuting. He did the dark art for a while.
