    Hey


    1. Variable speed limits on the M6: how do they work? Is it a measure of average speed or speeding at one camera or speeding at several cameras or just speeding way over 70 before you get caught

    2. After it gets dark is it a lot harder for police cars to catch the evidence needed to convict you? Also, are there many many fewer police cars out there after 10pm?

    3. If you are caught at say 95 in light traffic ie. safe conditions - what are the worst and best charges you could get? ie. without dangerous driving / tailgating

    Thanks for your help everyone

    There must be a way to stop them from giving me points or give me a lesser offence or just protection from getting disqualified...

    I mean obviously I would sound really apologetic but after that im not sure how to act?

    ...I was unaware of my speed - is that a good thing?
    ...I was overtaking?
    ....A lorry was coming into my lane, i had no choice

    etc

    There aren't any excuses.

    Even if there were to be an excuse e.g. a dying relative, you'd be expected to keep your cool and go the normal speed - my dad tried this excuse once and it got him a £60 fine + 3 lovely points on his license.

    "I'm a total tool with no regards for the law"

    That should see you sorted out.



    If the Police stop you for speed, they'll have been watching you for a few miles and will know you weren't taken evasive action, that you weren't overtaking and that you weren't escaping from a white Fiat Panda [kudos if you get the reference]. What they'll know is the truth: you're a moron who just wants to go fast.

    Yeah, you know.
    Go to ATM.
    Go to Car.
    Drive to Man With Drugs (Henceforth known as a 'dealer').
    Give Man With Drugs Money.
    Drive Home
    Take Drugs (these two can be alternated)
    Drugs Wear Off.
    Want more Drugs.
    Repeat.

    You could say:

    "I should know better than to speed here, I killed a woman on this road last week."


    ON topic: There is no excuse for travelling at 110mph. You're endangering yourself and others and it's unacceptable. You're not as good a driver as you think you are.

    There are no excuses quite frankly, we had to watch the consequences of idiots going to fast. Don't be that idiot.

    Tell him you were speeding because you had a dodgy curry last night and you need to get to the loo asap, if he doesnt let you go immediately, **** on his shoe and say i told you so. Probably wont get you out of the fine and points but at least it will ruin his day

    I don't know how you get vehicles in whatever part of the country you come from but in Oxford we get really nice degrees, nice jobs and do it through hard work and intelligence

    Tell them its really good fun. Just keep your eyes open. Police cars aren't too discreet and you can see if there's anyone standing on a flyover bridge. If you get caught, you get caught, explain that you were very late for something. Also don't drive dangerously weaving in and out of heavy motorway traffic if at all possible. Speed according to your surroundings. I know the law says that >70 is dangerous but seriously, come on. I could get to 70 on most 30 roads on the outskirts of town and not feel like I was endangering anyone if the roads were quiet enough. If you were to get caught would it be your first offence?
