So I got flashed by a camera doing 38 in a 30. My fault entirely as I had a lapse of concentration which we all do from time to time, right?
In my humble defence it was almost 1am and no cars or people were about - I'm not trying to wriggle out of it, I accept I'm at fault here.
But I've got to go on a Speed Awareness Course - the nearest which is 40 miles away - and pay £70 for the privilege.
I don't think this is going to make me drive any differently - well maybe for a couple of days or so. I like to think I'm a careful driver and observe the rules of the road - only one crash in 17 years and that was a WVM slamming into me.
Anyone else been on one of these?
