I have 6 points on my licence which was given 2 years ago.
I accepted the speed of 87 mph when the office stopped me and he showed me on his video recorder. It was an unmarked police vehicle driving behind me.
I apologised and pleaded for a verbal warning but he said he would have to complete the form as 87 was well above 70. He further said it will not be more than either an offer of a speeding course or a fixed notice based on the speed relative to the limit.
I gave me a copy of the form he completed but on getting home i then noticed he has put 60 as speed limit on that road ( instead of 70) which in my opinion was an error. the ticketing office obviously based thier judgment on 87 on 60 road rather then on 70 road which is why they have sent a letter to me that ' the speed at which you were travveling falls outside the conditional offer of a fixed penalty criteria and they will pass the case on to the Criminal justice unit who will now take responsibility of the offence and i will recieve a summons in due course.
Yes , it was an SP50 offence, and given 6 points in June 2011.
I've been offered a speed awareness course which i just did yesterday!
I was caught doing 70 on a 60 zone in July which was why i was offered this course.
This current offence was 5 days ago and I told the officer at the time that I even have a speed awareness course which was would be doing on Thgursday ( yesterday ).
