points technicality??

ok, so last year i got a fixed penalty for speeding.. 90 in a 70.. it was a straight dual carriageway, clear, dry, very little traffic. however, got stopped by an unmarked car. now my query is this.. i have recently moved and just found the ticket given to me at the roadside... on this ticket the offence code is stated as "LO20 Exceed 70mph" on my licence it is stated as "SP30" also the category of vehicle on the ticket is stated as PLG, where as on the tax etc it is always listed as "motorcycle"


does any one thing i have any recourse for appealing the points n fine on technicalities?

Afraid not fella......

If you had challenged the ticket at the time then you may have had a chance, but you have paid the fine and therefore accepted the offence. Take it on the chin and be thankful that he didn't catch you 5 minutes earlier when you were flat out............:wink:

i have accepted that i was speeding... and it isnt a major crisis to me, just thought id see what my chances were if i got a bit cheeky.... :wink:

he did say at the time that he couldve summonds me to court for that speed, but then said that although i was doing 90, my riding wasnt dangerous, and i was in control etc, and that i chose an "appropriate road" on which to break the law.. so he offere the fixed penalty... The copper was pretty decent about it actually..

all irrelevant

the code on the ticket is a code used by that force the SP30 is a national code both meaning the same thing.


again doesnt make any difference as the limit for both a a 'motorbicyle' and a PLG is the same
