Drivers Comments: Attended court myself, was polite, wrote an exceptional mitigation letter, but the magistrate said that as I was at the top end of the limit, the maximum penalty must be applied. A note to all, make sure the ticket is filled in correctly by the Police Officer, he had written down my car as a PLG (Public light goods, i.e. minibus) so I could have contested the whole thing, had I been sharper!

|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!!!

|114||70||Speed Gun||30days ban& £290 in total fine||22||Male||audi a4||Leicestershire||24/08/2012|
Drivers Comments: just picked up the car,felt sooo stupid would never be silly like that again..
|91||70||Police Car||Advice and general ticking off.||43||Male||Audi A4||Gloucestershire||24/07/2014|
Drivers Comments: Verbal warning only. Iíd spotted the policemqn on the bridge above the carriageway too late, and he clocked me at 91 from up there. I let the car slow down to 70mph without breaking so I could see in the rear view mirror if he was going to move,which he did. When he caught up with me I was doing a healthy 65-70. The blues came on, I was pulled over and given a good talking to about the death rates on that stretch of carriageway. My face must have looked panicked at being pulled over, or he gave me leeway for spotting him early, but very grateful for the officers leniency and I was a good boy for the rest of the 100 mile journey home.
|99||70||Police Van||5 points, £465 fine + £46 victim surcharge + £85 costs.||50||male||Audi A4||Hampshire||15/06/2015|
Drivers Comments: The offence was on the 21st Feb, case was on the 5th June. Think the effort put into the letter of mitigation and financial statement helped to keep the fine on the lower side. Anyway lesson learnt.
|103||70||Police Car||6 points £580 in fines||23||Male||Audi A4||Staffordshire||4/24/2018|
Drivers Comments: Caught going an average of 103 over 2 miles by an undercover police car. 4 months until the letter came through, magistates court. After advice I decided to not appear at court but fill out all the forms pleading guilty - exceptional hardship due to needing my car for work
|108||70||LTI20.20||£175 fine, £35 costs, 14 day ban||28||Male||Audi A4 1.8i|
