    My first speeding notification query

    My first speeding notification query 11th Jan 18 at 6:42 PM
    Hello,
    Just looking for some advice, long story short I received a notification today that I was speeding on a road 45mph in a 30mph. Iíve always travelled on this bit of road for over 14yrs (and wrongly assumed the speed limit!)-my worry is that they caught me on the 3rd January, but as I always drive on this road, I always do the same speed, so now I risk the chance of getting caught again, if I havenít been already.

    Iíve ticked the box for consideration of a speed awareness course so hoping Iíll be considered for that, if I get caught/registered again between the time of the 3rd Jan and today am I likely to lose my licence or go to prison?! Iíve never had any speeding or car problems before this and having been in two serious car accidents as a child, I get why limits are in place! My fault for assuming the speed limit of course.

    Thank you for any advice.

    This forum majors on private parking charges.

    If you Google speeding penalties you'll easily find out what happens the more you do it!

    PRIVATE PCN? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT TWO Clicks needed for advice:
    Top of the page: Home>>Forums>Household & Travel>Motoring>Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking - read the 'NEWBIES' FAQS thread!
    Advice to ignore is WRONG, unless in Scotland/NI.

    Prison for speeding? Not unless you were doing some mind blowing speed in a built up area. You would have to be doing over a ton for prison to be considered.

    Mind I suppose they could water board you into confessing to doing 200 plus. It’s as likely as you doing time.

    Prison is not a possible sentence for a speeding offence, it would need to be pursued as dangerous driving.

    I think upper limit in a 30 for SAC is 42mph (10% + 9mph) Not 100% sure though.
