|65||50||Fixed Camera||4 Points £400 Fine £40 Victim Surcharge||51||male||Audi A4||Hertfordshire||25/02/2016|
Drivers Comments: (Not sure who the victim is? Perhaps I caused some trauma to the poor camera operator???£85 Costs, pleaded guilty by post so a bit pricey really.
This happened at 1.30pm on a Monday on the M25. Crowded road as anyone who uses the M25 will tell you at that time of day. In flow of traffic, speed limit changed 4 times ranging from 40-60 between Watford and M40. In heavy traffic I somehow missed a gantry sign, and with the rest of the traffic flow passed through in excess of 50mph. I can only assume they made a fortune that day!
Because I had 9 points (all cameras) at the time of the offence, I couldnít accept the fixed penalty. 3 points expired two weeks later putting me on 6 points. I wrote and explained all this and requested a court hearing as instructed. Almost 4 months later I finally received a court letter. I pleaded guilty by post, foolishly thinking this would keep costs down for the tax payer etc. and again foolishly, thought the magistrate would see the situation for the sake of two weeks between points expiring and apply the same, or even slightly higher than the fixed £100 fine, which I would have accepted. But instead I have been crucified with a £400 fine, £40 Victim surcharge (who is the victim here?) and £85 costs. Completely out of perspective with the actual offence! Quite simply driver Tax!!
Now I think Iíll watch one of those TV shows, with a baseball cap driving like a maniac through the town centre in a stolen motor with 2 or 3 cop cars on his tail and no insurance, then watch him get a 12 month supervision order, £200 fine (probably because he or she canít be bothered to get a job!) and 5 points on a licence he hasnít got! And the police, courts and government wonder why we despair!!!
