    Angry Got Flashed :(

    Well, for the first time in 10 years of driving, I got flashed today. Heading to work at 6:30 from East Lothian to the Airport obeying most of the limits, minding my own business.

    Open stretch on Corstorphine Road just after Murrayfield (before the camera at the Zoo) I put my foot down a little and before I knew it, was going past a flashing speed camera..... 40ish on a 30 zone :/

    And the worst part? If i had waited about 10 seconds before hitting the gas a bit more, I'd have been in a 40 zone!!!

    First time I'll have points on my license, too. Life sucks :P

    yeah, sure it will.

    That's not the point though. The point is, I consider myself quite a safe and good all round driver, all my passengers comment on my good driving. What annoys me is that there are so many idiots on the roads these days that never fall into these traps.

    What is is these days anyway? £60 and 3 points?

    Yeah, spoken to my brother about this. 90% of the time there's no film, and 5% of the remaining time, there's a fault elsewhere. So statistically, i think it works out at around 5 from 100 flashes actually coming to something.

    But the fact that it's flashed as made me 'slow down'.
