    Default Ferking Speed Camera!!!

    I've just been nabbed by a Camera!

    37Mph in a 30Mph at 06:38AM.....

    So not going to pay, but instead go on some "Speed Course". To learn that "Speed can kill"....
    I'm going to challenge that with , No. Speed does not kill.... Lossing control at high speed, and slamming into a wall/spectators/peds/tree can kill...
    I Bet I'll get " what does this sign mean" type thing... rather that how to drive safely at the heady speeds of 37Mph.
    Complete waste of time, as I got 8 out of 10 on an online test thingy on THEIR Website, and it came back with "You Know Your Stuff" .

    Well thats 3 hours of my life I suppose I will never get back...
    A 3 hour skive from work I suppose!

    I still have to pay the fine, but it's been reworded to "tuition fee". 20 Quid an Hour...not a bad job for those Tutors is it!

    Speed Camera Bosses are Bu**ers!

    Cheers.

    Some of the cameras on the A13 still contain film. I've been flashed a couple of times (12 months back) and I'm still waiting for the tickets.

    Matt, if I was you, I'd be thankfull that I had the option to take the course in lieu of points.

    My GF's sister chose to go on one of those courses and actually found it interesting - yes there was the "slap on the wrist" talk but the rest of it she (and the random selection of others attending the course) found very educational, especially the awareness section where they pointed out things she and the others didn't even think or imagine could affect them.

    Count yourself lucky you had the option of taking the course and reserve judgement until you've actually done it.

    But at 06:30 on a rainy Thursday Morning! doing 7MPH over the limit.

    I'm not thankful for the course, It's bull****.
    It's not like it was done knowingly! (unlike Murder/Terrorism)
    If I'd knowingly broken the speed limit, I would have done 100Mph. (get your Monies worth)


    Ah well, I'm just bitter, cos I missed a Camera, First time in 3 years.
    I normally slow down just enough to not set it off,

    Cheers.

    I think Rainy being the operative word.
    If it was raining you should really have been driving more cautiously anyway

    Yes, I suppose I should reserve Judgment, but I can't help but think, it going to be a "You're here because, you can't drive", etc, etc.

    Is it a classroom thing, do they make you watch car crashes? etc etc.

    Cheers.
