Gotta love them mobile speed cameras. Grrr.

I agree. "£$^*^#"!!!

Not happy. 7mph above the limit and just cruising same speed as everyone else. My GPS dash cam says I was doing 55. Speed awareness course selected. Cheaper than points in the long run (insurance premiums go up by 20% for 5 years otherwise).

I've been done a lot for many things, I even got a years pedestrianism as punishment.

These days I'm just smarter about it.

(I developed a system)

Yeah, I also developed a system based on an old microwave oven and a satellite receiver head, but since the advent of laser, it's much more troublesome. I know how to do a laser system, but their system now can detect if you do that! Automatic gain control saturation. Hmm. So now I just don't bother and then this happens. Sigh.

Although I think I know your system. Works out better in court too :)

Did you argue with them?

I did a little then just shut up and let them get on with it.

The misinformation they spread is chronic

It was online, so i had to provide my own entertainment. 🤷🏻‍♀️🐖🐓🍒🍎🌮🍛 (random emoji pick)

I agree with @Rich. Some interesting stuff, but nothing we don't already know as petrolheads. I think i was being a bit disruptive as my mic was being muted a lot... I was quoting auto industry and international stats that they don't want the public to know. And i was correcting some of the misinformation. Well they do say that participation is key- that I did a lot. "Frank, if you could let the other's speak...?"

We had an asian lady (chinese/malay/indonesian?) who could hardly speak any english and she was being picked on somewhat unfairly. Imagine being done for speeding in a non english speaking country.

But it was an interesting intro to the finally "I've been caught speeding" club. 🤘🏻
