    The police are absolute *****, unmarked police car behind me on my way to tescos pulled me over and gave me a speeding ticket.

    Absolute *****.
    Unmmarked car!?

    *mental note to self - do not speed... AT ALL!*

    I have to admit that where I know there are cameras, I stick to the speed limit, even if the cameras are facing the wrong way, just in case! But in an area I know well and that there are no speed cameras, I usually go above the limit, even if it's just by a few mph (never done as much as 50mph in a 30 though! :p: ), but knowing that unmarked police cars go around clocking speeds I think I'm definitely going to go more careful!

    There are no speed cameras in York, think it was about 9pm, down an empty road, next to a racecourse(just a big empty field), last place on earth you'd expect to be caught speeding.

    Personally people like you shouldn't be allowed to drive then, as you seem way to nervous and are probably dangerous as a result and also you cause people to overtake you which is also dangerous. Please tell me your not one of these people that can't drive on motorways either?
    i was exaggerating! i was nervous to start with but i am fine now! i haven't passed my test yet, not long started driving. but, as i say, i am okay now, i was just exaggerating how strict i am with sticking to speed limits.

    Well if you are a learner than I can forgive you a bit for being nervous. Its just because I really hate people who do literally drive at 20 in a 30 zone and I know people who won't go on motorways because they are too scared - i feel that if you are too scared to drive on a motorway you shouldn't be allowed to drive at all - why don't they make learning on a motorway compulsary? Because as soon as you pass you can go on a motoway anyway, which is what I did, and this is surely more dangerous than learning on one

    Its not an excuse, but thats part of the reason I quite often speed, the amount of times I get stuck behind some prick going 20 or braking randomly, or in the wrong places, is stupid, and when I finally get set free I just wanna put my foot down and let off some steam.

    I just got a ticket through for doing 79 on the motorway I was passing a lorry at the time and being over taken by a car. The lorry bloody blocked out the camera van til the last minute. I am so gutted. Anybody know where I can find that coversheet that says they can't use what I say because I am not under caution? It was in MCN a few weeks ago
