Caught speeding

Well, I knew it was coming. Supposedly 48 in a 30 but I'm completely certain it's actually a 40. If they classed it as a 30 they'll have had everyone going down there that day.


Anyhoos.... they've let me off with just a warning letter. A relief I did not expect. I'm sure it'll be on file so they'll nail me next time. West Yorkshire Police if anyone's interested.

I hadn't realised before but that link is just for Leicestershire, so your local group won't be on it. I only posted it to describe what they do and how. Really I think you'd have been fined unless it was a Community Speed Watch group.

I'm an idiot

There is a speed watch thing in Leeds. Lots of people going out in their local area to catch their friends and neighbours - something I don't quite get.


Anyhoos, this lot looked more like coppers to be but that said, all they need is some ex cop kit like a jacket and who's to tell the difference at 40......8 miles an hour?

Local speeders.

That's the thing though, the assumption is always that it is outsiders and rat-runners who are taking the piss, then they find that the speeders are their wives, relatives and neighbours.
:laugh:
There is something about the familiarity of local roads which encourages the A-road dawdlers to keep the speedo at 40 when they reach the village. Bonkers.

I think they changed

The speed limit in the section leading past the National Coal Mining museum a while back. A lot of that road is 50 but there are sections of 40 and 30. I think they reduced it to 30 past that section.

Leeds ring road?

Was it on the inner ring road just under the tunnels, as they've got a temp 30 limit there for road works.

No consistency

I just don't trust these speed limits and cameras anymore.

On the A45 a dual carriageway and was 60 limit, because of works for the airport extension the speed limits have been changed to 40 (road work speed limits)

75% of drivers completely ignore the 40 signs and do 60 even through two of the cameras, they do slow down for another camera approaching traffic lights.

I just get the feeling that when I decide I might as well join them and do what was the correct speed limit, bumf flash and I get copped doing 60 in a 40.

Is the highway code worth the paper its written on or what? Why change the limit it there is no one enforcing it.

Is a speed camera a yellow box deterrant or a camera? If it is not working it should have a cover over it.

I don't agree with intentional speeding such as 40 in a 30 but when it's not clear or you get done in a grey area,(Like road work reduced speed limit signs left out when there are no road works) I really do think the system sucks.:mad:
