    what spoeed were you doing cos M7ACD seen a Programme about traffic cops if you are doing 80mph in a 70 and it's clear dry day and it's not very busy they'll just let ya go!

    They take these into account in some cases...

    What speed approx were you doing??
    Was it a busy road or Quiet?
    What was the weather like?
    Were you speeding through an accident blackspot?

    Also depends on how the coppers are feeling too! but that programe was on BBC a while ago!

    Was doing roughly 36 in a 30. Was clear and dry but it was approaching a corner and the road was fairly busy. I drive up and down that stupid road every day and they have never been there before!!

    Think i do need to invest in a snooper, expensive tho aren't they, not good for poor students!! :roll:

    You may have got away with that speed. Police guideline (and it is only a guideline) for speeding is 10% plus 4 mph of the speed limit for the road, before they prosecution. That is to take out the margin of error and give enough leeway for the driver to know they were over the limit.

    This is why you get away with 80 mph on the motorways, do 81 mph or more and they will pull you up

    The good radar detectors are quite expensive. All about £300-£400 IIRC.
