    Unhappy TS50 - Northampton OOPS!!

    I dont know northampton atall well but i managed to drive down the road (goes past debenhams, dunno what its called) in the town center last night, which is (it would seem) taxis and busses only, i didnt know until i was already half way down it - i obviously missed the signs while trying not to hit any of the hoards of pissed ppl evrywhere going clubbing!
    According to the DVLA i should get a 'TS50' :
    Failing to comply with traffic signs (excluding - stop -signs, traffic lights or double white lines).......... POINTS: 3

    Has ne1 been doen for the above?? if so what happened/how were u caught.
    I wasnt stopped at the time, but i bet sum1 was watching the CCTV, especially as it was clubbing time and there were hundreds of ppl about (and police!!)
    Any thoughts/experiences appreciated!!! (i really cant be doing with getting any points, as im still a '6 points and ur out' new driver.)

    Thanks!

    I live in Northampton but hardly ever go to town centre. I drove down the same street once.. My mistake.. I looked at the signs too late.. I was going 20mph there though. Now I know and I'm not going to make same mistake again.

    Did it happen last night and you already know that you get 3 points? DVLA is quick.

    They have been patrolling that street for a few weeks now. i have seen the police pull quite a few cars going up there. They are cracking down big style CCTV will have caught it, the town centre is plastered with camera's.

    PeteG, You were in Northampton and didnt let us know, shame on you
