    Default Caught speeding I think

    Coming to the end of the A34 today as it comes upto Winchester it changes from a national speed limit (Duel carriageway) into a 60mph and then a 50 mph (3 lane road leading upto a roundabout).

    As I came round the corner where it was 60mph I was still doing a good 65-70mph.

    All there was was a copper or speed trap guy standing behind his bike with the gun.

    Would he be catching people and taking the reg number and then send the NIP in the post?


    Is it still upto 21 days for it to arrive?

    How soon do you have to reply once you get it as the 20th day I go on holiday.

    There is a 'Speed Camera' banner on the front of his bike so you may be unlucky mate, especially if you have been photographed or videoed.

    The bike was facing away from me but the area does have speed camera signs up.

    Just have to wait and see what happens I think.

    Just one of these things.

    Hmm, 65+ going into 60mph limit. I'd pray to the God of motorists that it was close enough so they won't bother.

    I may be wrong but I thought the ones operated by Police officers(as opposed to camera vans with civilians in them) actually stopped you at the side of the road. Maybe you landed lucky. if you think you were doing between 65 and 70, then assuming your speedo is 5-10% out you may have only been doing 61 or 62mph on his gun. Chances are he was looking for bigger speeds.
    I got caught by a camera van on a Tuesday and the enforcement notice was through the door by the Friday.........

    I know that area well the 50 limit is about 400m from the bend they usually sit around the bend to catch those that don't slow to 50, were they around the bend just before the roundabout in the layby, if so you might be unlucky.

    I was under the impression if there is no photographic/video evidence and you haven't been pulled over, then you may well be alright.

    Default

    The usual calculation method on guns is limit plus 10% It is possible that the unit was an ANPR but this is not 100%

    I would have hoped that they were out hunting in a pack and it would have been a case of being stopped further up the road but again with dwindling numbers of units this is less likely now.

    as for the NIP it is 14 days is it not?
