    Question Uber Confused???

    Right, I hope someone can help me understand this. I was out this evening in the car and stupid old me, got pulled for speeding, by an unmarked car. I am already on 12 points for previous stupidity a while ago. Anyways, the officer approached my car and cautioned me, then asked if i was aware of my speed in the 40 zone. I wasnt aware of it but im certain I wasnt bombing it through. He asked me for all my details but wrote them on a notepad, and not the usual form, which I believe i have to sign, and get a copy of so I can produce my docs at the local police station. I didnt sign any form, i didnt see any proof of speed and I didnt get anything from the office, and the whole time i didnt even get out my car. Whats going on?

    He said that he would be reporting me for the offence of speeding. When i was reported before I was given a copy of the document and had to go and produce my documents.

    They get you to sign a fixed penalty, on 12 points your going to court. Thats why he reported you. A ban is looking likely.

    I thought verbal warnings work the same as written warnings now... I would be expecting something through the post fella Jace is a PO so wait for him to come along as PM him

    are you sure it was a police officer and not someone pretending to be one, in order to steal document numbers and such, as a fraudster? did you get the officers number or reg?

    Sounds like it was a normal beat officer - i.e. NOT a traffic cop.
    So he may very well not have had the forms.

    His notepad is a legal document, so start saving up for a bus pass.
