I was driving In a rental car.
I have a clean full uk driving licence. I was working driving a photographer from aberdeen to oban to photograph the highland games. the airline we flew with lost my luggage from london, which delayed us by 2-3 hours.
The photographer was annoyed we were running late/ had missed some of the games. I accelerated to overtake on a downhill section. at which point i was caught by police officer with a speed gun/ laser. I didn't really think about it at the time as i had already slowed back down. I don't drive fast normally. around 3 minutes later i was pulled over. Explained the situation to the officer. He was matter of fact took my details and explained i would receive a letter unfortunately because of the speed of 99 he said he was unable to do it at the road side.
he checked my address with me etc. I have heard nothing since.
today the letter turned up explaining i need to make a court appearance in mid september.
