74? I doubt that very much, unless going through a restricted roadworks site.

Re: Traffic Offences & Legal Guide

lol....given that I believe the minimum they can "do you for" is 10% + 1-3mph normally I find that difficult to believe or has that changed?

I now know that when doing 33mph in my Laguna I am doing 30mph. 77 does me 70mph.

Re: Traffic Offences & Legal Guide

I know that round here in dorset they wont even consider points, fines... unless you do more than:

10% + 3.

So a:

30 = 36
40 = 47
60 = 69
70 = 80



EDIT - SNAP.

Re: Traffic Offences & Legal Guide

i thought there was a 10% + 2 rule too, i dont think she would lie though considering her position

my speedo is as accurate as can be, ive been testing it on the road works 'watch your speed' thingy

Re: Traffic Offences & Legal Guide

Thats actually a very good idea. Hmmmm now where is the nearest one. lol.

What speed do those slow down signs come on at going from dual carriage way to roundabout or does it vary?

Re: Traffic Offences & Legal Guide

she could have argued her case gaz.as speedo's aren't callibrated when they leave factory they have to give you 10percent +.if they do you at 32mph especially if you are in a new car you could argue that it's the manufactures fault for putting faulty equipment in the car hence the 10% plus.know this because i spent days on sites reading about the allowed speeds and court cases because i thought i'd been done by a mobile camera
