If you think you where doing 30 and you where driving uphill you probably where only doing about 30, I dont drive yet but would have thought they where more likely to catch you speeding if they waited at the bottom of a hill, with youe head hanging out of the window shouting WEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
there were to policemen there,also i had my music very loud and was wondering if they gave me a funny look due to that lol
They'll be kicking your door down at 6am tomorrow.............remember some clean pants. :-D ;-)

the person is worried, they never even said they were speeding and you … the person is worried, they never even said they were speeding and you are making them feel worse with nonsense you are typing.



obviously you don't know jack poo about what the OB do or dont .. in regard to speeding or the like or were they OB or neighbourhood speed watch teams .. please tell me what you know about the Lti 20/20 or other speed detection equipment , I am interested .. and without the use of google ;-)

I hope the door kicking down part.. not seeing him in his skivvies :w00t:
They give you 10% leeway, plus some forces give you more on top, i believe surey gives 10% + 5mph ( that was from road wars/traffic cops programme i was watching the other day)

Hi,

As far as I am aware, the 'hair dryer' guns only detect speed and therefore they will have to stop you to give you a ticket (either they will follow you or radio ahead for someone else to stop u).

It is the ones that you see out the back of a police van that automatically clock you and then send a fine/points to the registered owner of the car. Also the static machines that sit on the side of roads will work this way.

So if it was a policeman with a hand speed gun and you were not stopped you should be fine......

You can get a ticket in the post. I would worry a bit longer if I were you.

The handheld guns the police use by the roadside normally only record speed and range as it's usually laser guns rather than radar. Hence while it's possible for them to send you a NIP in the post from noting down your reg plate it's unlikely.

With speed vans the laser gun is connected to a video recording system which records the operator as they check the speed on each vehicle, for those speeding you'll then get a NIP in the post.

I think you'll find that hospitals frown on people wandering around children wards if they don't know any of the patients:thinking:

Isn't this like the third thread you've had in the space of about a month regarding you and "your friends" inconsiderate driving habits?
