    did you provide the registration number of the speeding vehicle when you reported it... if you did, then i believe they will investigate to see if the excess speed was necessary.
    probably nothing will come of it this time, but it might well go on record somewhere

    Taco's can't be used as evidence of speeding anyway. But they can be used as defence to speeding.
