    Years ago my Dad had a close call. He was a prosecuting solicitor in magistrates courts (gave the police side of the story).

    Anyways, after a case, a policeman wandered over to him: "We could have had you at over 90mph!"

    "Where?"

    "On the M4 just outside Slough."

    "Where were you?"

    "We were in that bmw in front of you!"

    "Why didn't you stop me?"

    "Because we were late for court too!!!"

    Don't worry you grow out of it when you hit 30, I was a maniac in my 20's speeding, drink driving, handbrake turns in town centre, not wearing seatbelt, driving with no tax, multiple accidents, constantly being pulled over by police for driving Astra GTE late at night etc.

    Ah them were the days....

    They are trying to turn the whole of Brighton in 20mph limit - this is going to pee me right off and obviously they will be putting in a load of nice new speed cameras . . . .

    The government (and insurance companies!) make loads from fining us like this - I don't think your insurance should double/triple just because you got caught travelling at 35mph . . . .

    Try a company called Mulsanne. I'm 24 with 3 points and they were the cheapest for me, still £1400 for a VW Caddy SDI (slowest diesel invented) though :(

    Just put in my old Focus Sport registration plate and it was caught speeding on the 20th of this month.

    Edit: I only just noticed you could 'view picture' haha. The location was literally down the road so it was very convincing. Yeah you got me.
