I got a letter through a week and a half ago saying that I had been "flashed" speeding - 38 in a 30 limit! The ironic thing is that it was a static camera right outside the front of the flats where I live - Talk about s******g on your own doorstep!
I know exactly what happened - It was at 09:09 when i was a couple of minutes late for one of my regular heart check up and my mind obviously wasn't 100% on the speedo so I'm not complaining and offered to plead guilty straight away.
Yesterday I got back from a Sika deer cull (Fog stopped play so only taking 6 prickets) to find a letter waiting for me. It was offering a place on the National Speed Awareness Scheme. From what I have seen on the Innternet this course is only going to cost me £40.00 and a morning of my time (Which I have plenty of) but on completion I will not have to pay the Statuary £100 find nor will I have 3 points on my license which will bounce my insurance up, so I am going to accept it and book myself in.
I'm a little hacked off about it as I am normally very careful about speed limits, I've have had a clean license for more years than I care to remember but I have to hold my hands up to this one and just take it on the chin.
Has anyone else done one of these Speed Awareness Courese and if so what do they entail please?
