I wouldn't worry too much , if there were markings on the road it will confirm your speed as opposed to the patrol car .  Wink

Hi m8
 
Government guidlines are 10%+3mph so you should be okay for 36 in a 30 zone although, don;t quote me on that!
 
You should be okay m8, wanna buy some of my points??

NEver been caught m8? Shocked Lucky U!
 
Do about 30-40K per year, never had a ticket up until about four years ago, then been hovering on 6-9 points ever since - all these bloody camera's they keep sticking up.

M8
 
Send off you licence and your V5 tomorrow to get them updated, if you don't get it (old address) they will recheck when you don't respond and send it to your new address m8.
 
It is an offence to not have your driving licence (and V5 I think) registered to your current address!

i am pretty sure you cant be caught going towards the camera.You can only get done from the rear.Human rights and all that.

Im the same as you T, clean licence for 24 years then got caught on camera twice in the same week......34mph in a 30mph zone and 47mph in a 40mph zone.   6 points and £120 fine.
 
BTW whats the best gps speed radar for your car AND can you update the software yourself for free when your subscription runs out??
I spend more time looking for cameras now then looking out for people and bikes lol

Hi m8
 
I currently (well until Tues when the car and other toys go back to my old company Sad ) use an ipaq running tomtom4 and an Emtac bluetooth GPS.
 
Get Sat Nav with all uk speed cameras, red light cameras and regular mobile trap GPS positions plotted on, helps a lot when you are driving, the database can be downloaded from here .
 
Latest TOMTOM also lets you receive traffic data live over GPRS so you miss the Jams too!

Got a little question for T or anyone that knows a bit about PDA's  etc..  Grin
 
Well ever since young T mentioned in the post above about TomTom 4's, the subject has been rolling around my old grey matter for quite a while  Wink.  (T's fault  Tongue)
 
Well I have found this web site selling the TomTom 3 s/w in a kit with either a Dell Axim X5 or rz1710 Ipaq.
If any, which out of the two kits would you recomend??
 
http://www.pdamods.com/categories.asp?cat=90
 
 
Just want to know if you all think that this is a good deal and if these PDA's are any good.
Because I drive for a living its only a matter of time that another camera will catch me out, so need to keep on top of it all  Grin
 
Thanks for your input all.
 
PS T that tomtom s/w looks very good indeed m8!!
