    Vehicle : 57 zafira 1.9 cdti design

    Trim : design

    Engine : 1.9 cdti

    Year : 2008

    Default speed awareness course

    well yes i got caught speeding at the vast sum of 36mph in a 30 zone!.... infact i was going that fast that my tyres were on fire... NOT.

    im proper ****ed off that they situated them selves with a speed camera in a 30 zone that comes off a 40 zone and i didn't slow down fast enough
    and got zapped doing 36. i contested this and they just didnt give a flying **** and said "your on camera pal" so its tuff titty.

    all they did was offer me a speed awareness course, so i opted for that thinking all was ok until i realised that its going to cost me 96 bleedin quid the robbing dogs.

    im booked in today for four solid hours of utter bull**** telling me how to drive safely when iv had a licence since 1992 and its been clean for the last 15 years so i cant wait.

    never mind eh!... at least someone will get something out of it.. namely my 96 quid!

    The course won't be about safety....it'll be a bunch of scare tactics, pictures of crashes etc, and stories about how the world could be brought to an end by driving at anything over 20 MPH

    Actually, I've got to tell you this.

    I met a guy recently on an Advanced Motorcycle training course who told me straight away that he never passed his test, because all those years ago you just bought a licence over the Post Office counter. But how his 50 years of riding experience is second to none.

    Anyways, he then went on to tell me how he owned a Kawasaki dealer for 15 years and has driven every bike they ever made.

    He then went on to drop his bike TWICE right in front of me during the next two hours.

    I think some people just think they know everything, say they know everything just to keep in their comfort zone. When they actually know nothing

    ... and thats how sick to death the emergency services get by people time and time again not caring about driving safety in urban areas.

    I dont know one single Police Officer who doesnt like driving fast. But there is a time and place for it.

    Well the £96 is only £36 more than the fine would have been, then there is the fact that your insurance will have been more expensive for the next 5 years, so really your quids in. And the best bet is you'll slow down to 30 next time you get to that 30 mph sign too.

    I always love threads like this. You broke the law simple as that. Also from my experience of driving Vecs their speedos all over read by a reasonable amount (I may be wrong on your car) so your car will have been showing you more then 36 on the speedo. We all speed but complaining when you get caught is pointless.

    "I always love threads like this. You broke the law simple as that.".... this could be true.

    "

    No they over read, so your speed would be showing 40 and you would be doing 36
