Quick Question Thread

Recommended Posts

Points expire after 3 years but stay in your licence for 4. A total of 12 live points means "totting up" applies and you get a ban for being a speeding cnut.
If you do,say, 60 in a 30 zone you might be prosecuted for a Section 2 (of the Road Traffic Act 1988) which is dangerous driving. You would be banned for at least a year AND have to take and pass the extended driving test before getting your licence back. I wish a polis had been around to catch the cnut who tried to overtake me just as the road went down from a dual carriageway to single by Torness because Mr Audi w****r would definitely be facing a S2...
I'm pretty sure I have no live points at the moment then, maybe 3 at the most. And 82 in a 70 isn't going to get me a section 2.

Thanks to everyone for easing my concerns.

Done for speeding last weekend. Dead annoying.

But why would I get a Notice of Intended prosecution letter rather an automatic speeding fine?

I've not had any points for a few years - I presumed they had expired. And I was doing 82 in a 70 - so surely not a high speeding offence?

Would it be because it was a police car with a gun rather than a stationary speed camera?

I think under the new Brexit laws you get your right foot chopped off rather than three points.

Absolutely. Was popular in my house when I was wee until it was sadly replaced by the crisp butty.

I've always wondered about this, do you have butter with it? How much sugar?

There is an Australian version called fairy bread but uses hundreds and thousands instead of sugar. It’s common at kids birthday parties. Revolting stuff but not quite as revolting as vegemite.IMG_1580603756.480347.jpg

That would still qualify you to drive an Uber taxi, the road law ignoring brainless wanks..

Edinburgh private hires/übers must be the worst drivers around.

Absolutely. Even better is chopped up banana on a buttered sandwich sprinkled with sugar.

Pan bread, margarine and a good covering of sugar.

My uncle was telling me about but neither me or my Aunt had heard of such a thing. I may have to try one. He said it's best with butter as posters have suggested.

Naw, speeding fines are the kind of fascism that Brexit Man's been trying to escape from.

Speeding will now surely only be illegal for people who don't know what they're doing - women, children, and foreigners.

She must be getting on a bit, is it a more realistic prospect now?

You'd think so.

No, no. Has to be on toast, and salt brings out the flavour.

What foreigners? They won't be allowed in.
