Default Re: Oh no, not again (speeding)

As ACPO no longer exists as a body, their guidelines are pretty much redundant. There is a hard line on speeding here now, harder even than when Brunstrum was in charge! Stupid low limits are springing up and these are rigorously enforced by the speed vans. I think a couple of mph over the posted limit will become the new benchmark for knicking motorists.

Obviously a Freudian slip which reflects my views of some speed limits and some enforcement practices.

I had a dig as I know the Police and "Safety" Partnership are hot right now, with Operation Darwen (yes it is spelt that way by the Police) in full swing. I found this response to an FoI request in February 2018 on their website. It states they still follow the 10%+2mph guidelines from ACPO. Worth knowing if you are over this way and the speed wanders up.

If you ever want to ask a camera partnership a real low baller ask them in what percentage of offences detected where the speed recorded was in excess of 30mph over the posted limit was an offender identified and successfully held accountable. You would be quite shocked as to how low the figure is, which goes a long way to demonstrate how ineffective automatic detection is against the more serious offenders.

The tension is killing me

10 days and counting, no NIP yet. 4 more days (5 to be on the safe side) and hopefully I'm in the clear.

Little bit longer I'm afraid mate, they only need to send it within 14.

Fingers crossed though!

Hopefully you'll be fine, I always get nerves when I see a camera van when I'm out on the bike.

Two Sundays ago I was doing an indicated 79 (a true 72 - 73mph) on a dual carriageway and there was a police camera van concealed in a lay-by. I was a bit paranoid for the rest of the journey so when I got home I had to check what the limit was on that stretch of road using Streetview (it was NSL = 70mph)

14 days today since I passed the camera van...

...meanwhile in a little darkened room, a camera van worker is hunched over an envelope, rocking back and forth, cackling: "this will mess with his mind"...

(or I might be over reacting)
