TECHNICALLY IT WOULDN'T MAKE A DIFFERENCE BECAUSE THE SIGN IS IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA, NOT BEHIND IT SO TO SPEAK.
SO YOU COULD ARGUE THE TOSS.
JUST SAYIN LIKE.....
u wouldnt win though ... speed limits start from point of where the sign starts.We have a massive problem in areas around high wycombe where the local councils have changed all the 40 miles n hr to 30 and havent replaced all the signs but one at each end of road , now police cops have been platrolling in a van and booking hundreds of motorists,thing is its legal .. and nothing but a money making quick scam ...... motherfuppers ....
45 in what I thought was a 40, was actually a 30. Even though the distance between the white lines in the centre of the road dictates that the road is a 40.........
that's pretty fucking retarded and nothing to joke about really tbfh
Not really, considering I wasn't even driving.
We broke down, we got out to have a look what was wrong, I was quite pissed so sat back in the car, police turn up, and stupid me had chosen to sit in the driver's seat.
They thought I was driving whilst over the limit and not being insured to drive the car.
36 month ban and £750 fine.
They should be 4m lines with 2m gaps in a 40, same for a 30. It's only on roads with a speed limit above 40 where they change to 6m lines with 3m gaps. Regardless, it's a pretty weak defence. You should be looking at the road, not working out how long the white lines are.
