Interesting.

185 MPH on the M1 in 1964, and totally legal. :y

Boys own annual stuff. The stuff of 'daring do' when men were men are women were glad of it. :)

And not a pronoun in sight!  :D

38 in a 30 speed limit would surely qualify for a speed awareness course, especially being your first speeding offence? You are narked about getting points, so I'm surprised you didn't take up the offer of one, or were you not offered one...?

Yes I know that ::)....it's the basic info re eligibility for a  speed awareness course. Ray mentioned that he was peeved about the points....
Maybe there was some of the criteria that wasn't met that resulted in a course not being offered and the 3 points and the fine. But a basic speeding offence at that quoted speed with no other offences on a first offence and providing the offender accepts the offer, then a speed awareness course ought to be offered. Force policy does vary from region to region but they are all pretty standard at 38mph. Most forces allow infringements of 10% plus 2 mph, which I understand was from the days when speedos weren't accurate as today to allow a percentage for speedo inaccuracy.

Pity you never included this information in your first post.
So.....you can't do a speed awareness course because you've done one within the last three years. And the reason you haven't got any points is not because you haven't transgressed before, but because you've already used your get out of jail card.
Sheesh.....whatever happened to the English language.

I must admit I read it as a first offence.

I have to admit having done an online speed awareness course recently (59mph on the M62 in a 50). Got zapped by a fixed camera, but in the preceeding stretch the variable speed limit had changed between 50, 40, then 60 , so in a moment of inattentativeness (is that a word?)......not an excuse I know, but there we go....
I did learn that if you attend a course for a particular speed offence (such as for a 50mph offence), and within the 3 years get nobbled by a camera for another speeding offence but in a different speed category (such as a 60mph), then you are eligible to attend another course. If you did two in a 50mph, then no, but if one was 40 and the other in say a 60, then you are eligible for a second course, even within the 3 years.
That came out on the course, so I presume it is correct, although I won't be risking it just in case it's not.....

Shame you don't have to go to the classroom anymore as I quite enjoyed my Speed Awareness Course.

There was an amusing know it all dickhead who kept chuntering away about the injustice of it all, some interesting characters to chat to over coffee, and an attractive blonde with nice tits to distract me.  :)

Although I could have done without it of course, it was a nice day out!  ;D

On my course, it was all old bints, or thick bimbos I wouldn't even go near with yours.

I have no good things to say about mine, other than it saved 3 points, which would have been harsh for such a tiny transgression of the rules....
