    done for speeding!

    B*gger.
    Coming home last night going up the M11 between the north circ and m25. noticed there was no trafic on the other carriageway. saw a police omega parked accross the outside lanes. assumed at first there was an accident or something. didnt notice the b*stards pointing a laser gun at the oncoming traffic untill it was too late! :roll: reckon i was doing between 85-90 (not even that excessive) got further up and realised they had shut the motorway at the m25 junction. had used the opportuniity to catch poor old people like me. cant really complain coz i was speeding but it was an open road, little traffic etc etc... oh well!

    That is a bit harsh by the police - very opportunistic!!
    Sorry to hear the news - guess we can all learn from that as well though.

    that sucks mate! i thought the police had to be on the same side of the road as you with the car pointin in the same direction as the way you are travelling to actually do you for speeding!? well that what i've been told in the past!

    re: done for speeding!

    tbh mate i think with the laser guns they only tell the police the speed you are travelling, to nick you they have to actually stop you!?!?!?

    i could be wrong though!!!

    Bummer

    Was the laser gun on a tripod mate? sure that has to be the case now as you can frig the redaing by moving the gun

    Assume you don't use any kind of detector??

    They don't have to stop you to get a speeding fine. I was doing 85 on the A180, came round a bend a there was a copper van with a camera out the back!! Slowed down and hoped for the best but 2 weeks later the sp50 came through!

    fingers crossed indeed! it was a hand held jobbie, didnt see any flash or camera as such, just the 'gun', and didnt see any plod further up to stop people. just checked an insurance website and a SP30 adds about 60-70 quid on my premium, not the end of the world, but a pain is the aris all the same. nah no detector, want in my car but a company primera! how long will i have to wait until I can sleep easy do you think?
