    You have a provisional licence, the law requires you to have a "L" plates on your vehicle until you pass a test for that vehicle class, the copper was doing his job, enforcing the law....the beak gave you some Browne points and probably upped his bonus via your pocket...

    We all at times do thing that are not kosher but usually "yes sir, no sir, certainly sir, works", but don't complain when you get a slap for your own stupidity, buy a spare set of "L" Plates.

    could have pushed your bike there, bought the plate and fixed it on, then ridden it home legally, thus avoiding the 1 hr walk home again.

    then again, a 2 hr walk isn't exactly the end of the world is it ?

    I have been done by two of those cameras and they were both revenue earners, One was a failure to slow down from 60 to 50 as they had just changed the limit (50yrds before the digital camera) and the other had been calibrated to catch HGVs running at just over the out dated 40 mph limit on single carrigeway 60 limit roads.

    no excuse I know but I rarley excede the speed limits by more than a few miles per hour

    Speed Cameras

    I'd just like to say that the top one (in Lower Heyford, not that far from me) was found pulled out and thrown in a hedge on the opposite side of the road.


    However, police with camera vans now sit outside this old fellas house right round a corner so you can't see them.

    Received this email from a firm trying to sell me camera detectors. However, I did notice the cameras were there Friday just gone, but the camera signs are "greyed out" with paint at the moment, so they can't be live. Like they don't make enough money from the sodding crossing as it is !

    During last week, there were SPECS average speed cameras
    erected on the QE2 "Dartford" Bridge in Essex/Kent.

    They start just before the bridge and end before the tolls at the end.

    If you have driven by and not seen them last week, it's because
    they are mounted on a road gantry rather than on the normal
    yellow or blue poles.

    Often there is a big delay between the cameras being put up
    and actually going live, but our source tells us that they are
    going live this week.

    The SPECS area on the other side of the road is also being
    extended but we understand that the extra cameras haven't
    been cabled in yet.

    14,000 miles, whoopee f*cking doo you cocksucking pr*ck. I'm pulling 30,000 plus a year, in a variety of vehicles. Now all well and good, but I would say a large number of land rover drivers on here can only dream about breaking the speed limit on a motorway.

    When you get dragged from your bed at 2 in the morning by the callout service, because a life safety system has failed, you've got to drive up to 150 miles to put it right, the last thing on your mind is keeping to the speed limit. Chances are, you don't know the area well, it's pitch black, and you're thinking of the poor sods relying on you getting there as fast as possible.

    Except for you, who appears to only be thinking of their own smug self righteousness.

    I whole heartedly agree with speed controls in built up areas during busy times, especially around schools, old peoples homes, hospitals etc. But it needs to have some perspective.

    Wasnt born in norfolk, Oxford. Never sucked cock, and dont intend to. So are you saying that everyone that speeds is not smug or selfish?
    I am all for freedom on the roads, big brother watching us all the time.
    I thought this thread was anything goes? The whinging tossers comment was only a joke to liven up the debate. At the end of the day, there is nothing we can do about them. kiss kiss.
