Hi.I have recently ( in the past 2 years) been on 2 speed awareness course and I am well aware of my speed at all time. I now habitually use my Cruise Control at ever change of Speed Limits and on this occasion I set it to 30 mph. I cannot vouch for the accuracy of the Cruise Control but as I was behind 3 4 other motor vehicle - headed by a huge HGV - I could only be doing the same speed as they were. With this information you can pick up the background of my last letter to Mr Pritchard. I can supply you with the previous correspondence.
I thought that was clear from the copy of the text that I sent to you. Maybe it would be clearer if I could scan and send you all the correspondence. I believe that their mobile camera was faulty and that they caught me - as the tail-ender of 4 other vehicles. I believe that they and I were driving within the speed limit and I think IO am entitled to know if the four vehicles in front of me were not given Notices of Intention to Prosecute - as I had to be driving at no more or no less than them.
I do not wish to be treated as a scapegoat if the mobile camera had not been activated by them- I think therefore that whether of not they were speeding - is highly relevant and I am entitled to know - surely you agree?
I do not understand why you do not understand the point I am making. I could only have been doing the speed they were doing as I was in a queue. This was a camera manned in a Police car - not a fixed camera. I maintain that my speed was exactly their speed and if they were caught on camera - even though not served with Notice of Intention I would be prepared to accept a Fixed Penalty as it would be obvious that I was doing the same as as them - maybe a more reliable datum point than some camera!
I am not concerned with any other cars except those immediately in front of me who fixed my speed. I believe that none of us were speeding and I am entitled to know if all of us were - or if I was the only one - which would not be possible - because I was immediately behind them!
I am sorry that you feel that my question has no relevance - I could not disagree more emphatically. If I had the names and addresses of my partners 'in crime' I could call them as witnesses to the speed they were doing. They would readily give affidavits if they had not received any Intention to Prosecute notices and would -in essence - provide me with corroborative evidence that we were not exceeding the speed limit.
Do you agree with this hypothesis? If so can't I get the Police to help me to trace these potential witnesses? Their camera should make it easy for them - from the registration numbers of the four vehicles - in the same way as they traced me.
Do you intend to answer my last to you, before I rate you? It is a serious answer to your last to me?
