Hi. Thank you for your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try to help with this. Do you admit that you were speeding?
I didn't know I was speeding as I was keeping up with the traffic. I only have Sussex Police letter indicating the Speed Camera said I was exceeding 30mph.
Hi Jo, Should I stay on the line or wait for you? Best wishesPeter
Or should I Save and Exit?
As I haven't heard from you for 25 minutes I will Save and Exit. Just hope I/you can pick up the thread again. [email protected]
Sorry, I got logged out!
What was your speed ?
Also, what is your defence? You seem to accept the offence.
I am confused. I hit the Saved and Exit sign but was asked to rate the Expert's answer. After responding instantly with a question to me that I immediately answered there has been silence. Ironically my question is about speeding but so far the JA service is unlikely to be caught by a speed camera! I don't feel I can really rate Jo until I get more advice to my queries/questions!! Currently it would be Bad but if more of an exchange gets under way of course that may not be the case.
Ignore my last message as we are now in contact
Yes, I'm back in too.
Can you respond?
I can convert this to Q and A if you are struggling.
I don't know what my speed was. The Alleged Offence simply says "Speeding - exceed 30 miles per hour on restricted road . automatic camera device" I am not automatically accepting the offence because I was not overtaking and the road was the main A22 where there was other traffic going at the same speed in front and behind me. As I said in my original communication to you, the Sussex Safer Roads Unit where I had to send my response to their allegation have not answered any of my points.
It's 1.45 pm so do I hang on? Should I expect any more from you this afternoon? This is when a telephone conversation is so much better than this on line exchange with all its delays and interruptions.
The last response I have from you is "Shall I convert this to Q & A if you are struggling?" Have you communicated further since then?
I really wish we could talk so we can get to the bottom of this.
I don't know if I have a defence because it's their technology against my complete surprise at being accused.
I'd like the following to be taken into account
1. Were others caught like me at the same time?
2. The A22 is a main road thus is a 30 mph restriction right at Halland?
3. Apparently this is where many get nabbed clearly unfairly. If I had known I would have made absolutely sure.
4. Is there poor signage if so many are offending?
5. 45 years driving without any points on my licence and I'm caught in an notorious money spinning trap for the authorities.
If I am wasting my time with all this what do you know about car insurance companies putting up premiums for those who incur points? If it doesn't matter the I'll take the points and not bother about going on a driving course. If it does then I'll go on the course to keep the premiums down. I am loath to phone my insurance company and ask for obvious reasons
Does that give you everything now to advise me?
I've also done a Google check on what Insurance Companies do when speeding points go on to a licence and many increase their premiums.
Therefore I'm going to have to bite the bullet pay the fine and go on a driving course to avoid the points.
I assure you I'm a person who will always accept my wrongdoings but in this case I genuinely think it is grossly unfair.
Thanks for your help
