Good Morning,

We appear to be on the same page, why tear ¤¤¤¤ about then complain injustice when you get fashed and go to the ends of the earth as SamWoerth suggests to try and discredit the system ---- to much stress for me

Cruise Control, best invention ever - use it all the time, same page again! Don't forget that at 80 the chances of getting a ticket are almost zero (I'm sure that someone will post something to split hairs, as you put it, on this one!) but they wont even flash you until you are over 77 and then you will get an offer of a speed seminar or something.

You are not the sort of person then that needs to worry too much.

You do not appear to be in the boy racer (or boy mid life crisis-er, or girl with kids in the back who has no clue how to read a speedo) fraternity who seems to feel compelled to drive past my house (100yds inside a 30 zone in a village with a school across the road) at 70MPH + when they are coming form a 60 into a 40 before the 30 !

If I had a speed camara in my front garden I would be a millionaire by now.
