    It's just an insurance policy, not legal protection
    £300 a year
    Come on, points and a fine, as well as increased insurance premium, is cheaper!

    Ok I think the motorway speed limits are a joke, but this has an adverse affect for 20/30mph zones in urban areas.

    Imagine your children are out playing on the street, or nearby with plenty of signs warning drivers of speed limits due to children crossing etc, would you like a serial speeder who should loose their license get off with it? What if they claim a childs' life? Not at least anyones' on here..God forbid.

    Sorry where this is applicable to someone doing 90mph on a motorway, it has a grave downside in towns.

    The berks who zoom around town deserve to loose their licesne and have no defense.

    3 points wont make much if any difference to your insurance anyway... The only way you can contest a fixed penalty notice is to elect a trial (plead not guilty).. that would be quite a gamble. You may get covicted AND still have forked out £300. And a court fine and costs would be more than the ticket.

    Just set your cruise control to the speed limit... its much easier?

    Check the small print of the insurance policy
    Basically they are NOT getting you off the offence
    What they do is cover the additional costs AFTER you have been convicted
    Equally, if you get disqualified then they cover additional costs for someone to drive your car OR for alternative transport, to and from work

    As above, it works out at £300 a year
    Professional drivers (and I don't mean taxi, HGV and coach drivers) tend to purchase this type of policy, for anyone else it's a waste of time

    Surely the answer is simple, save your money and comply with the law, dont exceed the speed limit. Bit of a no brainer really.

    Whether there are loopholes to exploit is not the issue, you are either law abiding or you are not. We all know its relatively easy to get caught for speeding for just doing a few MPH over the limit. However, its up to us to ensure we dont go over the speed limit, and the result is... you dont get any fines and your license will be clean. In the event you do get caught for any motoring offence regardless what it is, if your guilty then hold your hand up and accept the punishment.

    I dont live in fear of getting a speeding ticket simply because I try not to break the speed limit. In 47 years of driving I have had 2 parking tickets, and about 10 years ago was caught doing 34mph in a 30 limit area and that was because it had changed from a 40 zone down to 30mph and I was not aware because I had joined the road in mid section and had not seen the new 30mph signs placed at the start and end points, at the time no intermediary signs had been errected. I recall the wife saying watch your speed as we had both seen the bobby, to which I replied its okay I'm only doing 35mph...lol in fact it turned out to be 34.

    I was offered a speed awareness course at a cost of £95 which I gladly took in order to keep my license clean. I was not annoyed at being caught speeding or the bobby who booked me with his handheld device, it was a fair cop, I was annoyed at my ignorance for not being aware that it had changed to 30mph from 40mph.

    Paying someone monies to find loopholes in the law or to get you off when you know you are guilty is something I personally would not do and would not condone. It may get you off, but it does'nt change the fact you still know you are guilty. Depends on one's own integrity I suppose and how much one value's it. Some people have more integrity than others, while some have none at all.
    If your totally innocent then thats a different matter.

    If the ability to keep mobile is that important to your business or livelyhood, then perhaps this type of insurance to pay for a driver may well be justified as a form of insurance, many businessmen have this sort of insurance cover. I think my eldest son has something similar as the effect on his business would be very severe if he was unable to drive.
