Bad luck PB. That toll road really does beg you to go faster . I'll be watching those bridges damn closely from now on. I've seen them on there before but still takes ya chances.

I don't think 100+ is an automatic ban though, it's usually a court summons (which could result in a ban).

My licence has recently become completely clean after getting caught twice (10mph over each time ) 5 years ago (within weeks of getting my last 350Z!!!). Need to be careful now...

Let's hope this isn't true as it would be a worrying development.

The M6 toll is a dangerous road for speeding there is never anybody on it!! It is so easy to cruise at 100mph and not realise your doing it your bloody lucky! 1mph off

It is under handed and not English! I bet your old april was going

I've still got a clean licence somehow. last night about 11:30 i was on the M6 going north doing about 85 and i could see blue lights flashing coming from behind(no jokes) moved over and a unmarked white lexus IS came flying past never seen it before good job i was going faster!

I thought they'd all given up with roadside lazer one's... anyone recommend a decent lazer/gps detector thats not going to clog up the dash?

Still clean here too. Been close on so many occasions, managed to anchor on just in time. Been flashed 6 times but all are single flashes...just lucky I guess. I'd be doing the exact same in an M6...

A laser jammer (ahem... I mean garage door opener) would have come in handy there!!

Tis shit when it happens though.

Most likely an ANPR van, they do look similar.

It's checking for vehicles without tax/moto/insurance.
