Default Has anyone been done for speeding between 70 and 100 on a motorway?

I'm curious what the consequences are and how common this is?

Does insurance generally go up more and is it deemed worse than say an SP30?

I've been done for doing 65 on a motorway when there was a temporary
50 mph restriction due to road works. Didn't see either the
temporary restriction or the camera due to thick fog.

The offence code was SP50 (I think it stands for "speeding on a
motorway"). As a consequence the cost of my insurance renewal
increased by around 20 pounds.

I've been stopped three times.

First time 101mph average. 5 points and a fine after a court appearance

Second time. As far right as the SV speedo would go. Let off.

Third time. Was listed as excessive speed. (95 mph) but was actually filtering at that speed so didn't get clocked doing real speeds. SP50 3 points and a fine.

Going back 18 years or so ago but 90ish, 3 points, 30 odd quid fine, SP50.

The insurance issue was.....complicated.....so hard to determine the effects of that offence.

Before the renewal was due I got another SP50 for over 100 and then did about 10 grands worth of damage to my bike and a poor woman's VW in Putney...

So it was hard to tell how much of the first SP50 was reflected in my quote for £1500 Third Party Only...

I got caught doing 82 mph by a scamera van on a motorway 18 months ago and got 3 points, a 60 fine and SP50 on my license. My bike insurance went down the following year too so I don't think it makes that much difference, it didn't to me at least.
