Shawn got a SPEEDING TICKET????????????????? Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

What police officer was cruel enough to give the lovely SHAWN a ticket? Shocked Very Happy

Yes. Which isn't all that bad....I mean i've received.....hold on....1,2,3,4...um...some.

If you lived in the UK you'd have a driving ban now............. Sad

Each ticket is £60 MINIMUM and 3 points on your license, (permit) MINIMUM. Get to 12 and you've lost the license.
Points don't count any more after 3 years, so 12 or more in a 3 years streatch, and you've had it.

I think I have only received 2 or 3 tickets and one was for not wearing a seat belt. Plus they were a number of years apart.

THAT carries points too, as does using a cell phone while driving.

And there are cameras EVERYWHERE: between Dover and my home, 240 miles, there are over 30 FIXED ones, and loads of mobile sites Evil or Very Mad

Not to mention the SPECS cameras used to measure average speed over 10 miles or so, to enforce lower limits through motorway, (toll road) roadworks.

There aren't many if any cameras here. But when I was in Texas it seemed like they were everywhere on every corner.

Well, so the so-called safety camera partnerships say. But others have just as compelling statistics that prove that not only do they NOT lower the number of accidents, in some cases they CAUSE accidents, (eg: driver on motorway sees one, brakes hard just in case, someone rear-ends him, or has to swerve out of the way.

Funny thing: the county that uses NO speed cameras also has the lowest accident rate in the UK...........
