    Exclamation I was a lucky boy!!!!

    Last Friday I was heading to Shell Island after work and having to be there by 9pm I thought I would shoot down the M53 at lets just say a very high rate of knots(3 figures!).

    The sat nav was saying we would get there after 9pm so I had to get some motion when out of no where a volvo with very nice flashing lights came behind me

    I got in the car and he showed me my maximum speed which to say was not good made me have a bum hole like a wind sock

    He cautioned me and asked why I was doing this speed and being a normal guy I told him as the above and we where not going to make it. He shut his book and told me at that speed its a court summons plus I will loose my license

    He then astounded me and offered me 3 points and a £60 fine .

    I do have to say Traffic Cops have been given a bad time over the years however this guy has saved my career, house, lively hood you name it!

    Thanks

    I have driven keen for over 14 years and with the milage I do it was only a matter of time, however feeling the way I did when he showed me the video I am going every where at the limit from now on.

    Lesson learnt

    I once got stopped for doing 56mph in a 30mph zone approaching a 40mph zone.

    I was 25 and jjust started work, new suit, fresh face .... it was 0615hrs on a dark winter morning.

    Got flagged down, didn't realise what I'd done - got shown the speed gun - I looked horrified, I apologised and got let off with it.

    That taught me a lesson.

    He gave me a chit of paper ... he said he had to so as to show his boss he was doing his job. I've still got the paper in my file somewhere

    I have done some silly speeds in the past and I drive for a living. Its not good mate but we all do it and I done it last at 8:45 am today.
    Big numbers on the dash In the V6 and I hit most of them at times.

    It does make you think when you here a story like yours " I will stop that from now on "

    I doo have to stop myself doing it!

    Well done on the copper who let you off. "Most of them are good guys" (just my view)
