Was that the actual speed, or after 'allowances'?

Which police force was it? How do they justify such policing?

How to alienate the public......I wonder what the actual cut off speed was that day - anyone over 80mph fair game perhaps?
I'm not sure what you mean by 'allowances'. The NIP says 83mph so I assume that was the actual speed. I normally have the cruise set at 85 so that is probably what it was. I certainly wasn't the fastest car on the road and just going with the flow.

Sam, It was the A3 so Surry police force. I drive that road a lot and have never seen a camera in that place before but will have to remember next time.
