Speeding ticket rules?

Hi there!

I have a nasty feeling that I was caught speeding for the first time today.

I was driving down a two-lane road which is usually 50mph. There were roadworks going on and I was doing about 40-45mph. At a roundabout at the bottom of the road, there was a policeman with a radar gun thingy.

I didn't think anything of it at the time, but on the way back the opposite way, I noticed a fold out 30 mph sign on the floor with sandbags around it. My passenger looked and saw the same sign on the road i was previously going down.

These signs must've been about 2 feet high from the ground. I had a lorry to my left, and a car directly in front of me, which totally obscured my view of the sign (if there was actually one at the time).

To cut a long story short, could I appeal against this? Could anyone please tell me where I can find a list of rules that have to be in place for them to convict you?

Thanks in advance!

I was done for speeding last year, and I thought if an actual copper got you with a radar gun (as opposed to a static speed camera) - you got your ticket there and then. is that right?

I don't really think you'd have a leg to stand on in relation to where signs were placed and how they were obscured from your vision, IMHO. 3 points and £60

I'm not sure. It was quite a busy roundabout, and I think him stopping there and then would cause quite a hold up.

Looks like i'll just have to wait for it in the post then I guess, or hopefully, he just got the bloke in front of me!

Fingers crossed!

Don't know if it'll help but I just did a quick Googley and found these.

I would highly recommend a visit to our friends at 5ive-O:


I'm pretty certain that a copper with a Gatso has to give you the ticket there and then, but the Feds on 5ive-O would be able to confirm this for you

Great forum for this sort of stuff by the way chaps!
