    never does, never will.

    its looked on as an easy way to avoid points and little else.

    if you spend all your driving time concentrating on your speed you aint concentrating on your, and others, safety.

    In my defence, your honour, I had a feeling he was going to my house...

    But as soon as the fire engine went past my road I eased up... :RollEyes::Rofl1:

    Best toy on a car is a speed limiter (providing you remember to put it on:Rofl1::Rofl1:)

    I think they might Mo.

    I got a ticket for parking today and the [STRIKE]shi[/STRIKE] bloke who gave me the ticket said being a life member of MHF didn't make any difference.

    Madness:Doh:

    My daughter and son inlaw holidayed in France last year and used my sat nav to get where they needed to go to...complaint...it keeps telling me (I'm speeding) oh says I then you didn't get caught then did you..
    If you listen to advice you won't be done for speeding :Cool: lesson learnt the hard way
    Strange advise but it works..

    North Yorkshire has NO fixed camera's of any kind.....but we now have 3 camera vans.

    but they are making up for years of lost revenue at a hell of a rate.

    the local newspaper print a list, and local radio also announce it, of which Scarborough area roads, and the dates, the cameras will be on.

    speed doesnt kill, any more than a gun doesnt kill.

    its the person in charge who kills
