    Hi All,
    I know it was stupid and feel totally embarrassed and guilty over this. But Just got done for speeding 108mph on a duel carriageway on my own clear conditions, just went pass a row of lorry’s and briefly gave it some poke and in between them was a unmarked police car. Will I get banned for this as I need my car to get to work due to shift work and no public transport and also for the children on school runs and other normal dad taxi activity

    If it affects your livelihood you might get off with a shed load of points and a very hefty fine.

    Not at that speed. If the copper wanted to be kind he / she would of put you as 97mph.

    Shitter but what area was it

    Even though you say about shifts a ****** in a wig could easily flip that and say you should know better. I’ve just been caught 74 in a 50 but I was in the bracket of points. Fingers crossed for you bud!

    Bit late for you now but the car does come with 3 separate speed warnings (only two are user adjustable) so you can make your car sound like a life support system in overdrive when you go over your pre defined speed limit.

    You need a good solicitor. I was looking at a ban a while back (57 in a 30, not clever I know) but thanks to a good solicitor I managed to avoid punishment

    I live down the road from the A38 pal. Where abouts on the road did they get you? Normally a very quick road as it is.

    What was the cost of your solicitor been quoted nearly £750 to be represented. I know I’ve got to take my medicine but just trying to keep my license and job

    Yes gave me notice of intent, yes I know I’ve got to take my medicine and whatever they give me just need to try and keep my license. He was ok but in my opinion tried to exaggerate the road conditions saying it was busy I only went pass 3 lorry’s and a couple of cars. And I also questioned on what distance he measured my average speed because I know it was only for about 20sec that I floored it.

    If my maths is correct (feel free to check). 108mph is equivalent to 0.6 miles in 20 seconds. How long a view did they get of you?

    Did they sit you in the back and show you the footage? I know from my experience they don't have the dash cams on 100% of the time.

    Yes exactly that’s why I questioned over what distance.I had a funny feeling he was a unmarked so I pulled in to 70mph
