12 in total over a 27 year driving period. Currently nine, first three fall next June. Got a great photo of me driving a loan car Cayman S on the M4.

Most recent this summer was a fixed camera in 'Ull. A bright orange Focus ST with a big bore exhaust had startled a cat on the other side of the road and the cat was running towards me, so I had the option of definitely hitting the cat or speeding up slightly. The former was not an option imo. 37 in a 30.
much cheaper to run the cat over!

Cheers H, but I don't thing a 500's quite me

+1 on the no points for me

None at the moment, but picked up six points and 500 fine in '97 for 106mph on the bike after been nabbed by a laser.
Pretty lucky really for two reasons....
1) The other rider I was with got fined 1000... as he was 'lucky' enough to have his redundancy money in his bank account and the fines were means tested (my brief never handed the forms in )
2) Later on the same run we were 'flat out'. On my bike that was only 155mph. I was being left behind.

I would say that the trip to court shat me up big style and I've been 'clean' since.
The bike went some years ago and I always still try to 'make progress' but within limits (plus the plod now publish on their website where the mobile cameras are going to be ..)

For Staffs:-

Is there a 'safer roads partnership' in your area?
If so, have a look on their website.

Got a clean licence at present .

Only ever 'caught' twice, both about 10 mph above the limit (40 in a 30 / 70 in a 60) so hardly hardcore. Both were within 3 days of each other not long after I'd got my first 350Z. The second one was set on cruise-control and I'm to this day adamant is was a 70. Dropped off my licence now as they were 5 years ago.
