Re: Pointy no spark

stop/run switchgear switch. you need to check the continuity of the switch in/out. IIR you can do it at the switchgear end instead of the connector end (which is a nightmare to get off)

Re: What happens when you are caught by a speed camera?

sounds like a clerical error. tell them to keep quiet about it. they might get a letter saying points have been added they might not.
