If we are thinking about why it could actually be 74 in a 70, remember the speed limit on a motorway is 60 when towing a trailer, I don't know if the NIP would call it exceeding the speed limit for the class of vehicle though.
(except air quality and Medical Science )
That's what I'm wondering; what's on the NIP if you're doing 74 on a 70 road in a vehicle that's limited to 60? Would it tell you the limit is 60 or 70?
I'm sure that happened to a friend years ago in a works van on a section of motorway that turned into an A road, and I *think* the NIP had him as doing ~70 in a 70.
I'm not finding anything on Google.
Friend of mine received a similar NIP on the A64 when he was driving his company van.
No it isn't.
"Band A" refers to the recommended level of fine in the Magistrates' Court sentencing guidelines. Band A has a "starting point" of 50% of "Relevant Weekly Income" (RWI) and a range of 25% to 75% of RWI. The normal fine is 50% and all fines are reduced by a third for a timely guilty plea. Three points is also the recommendation.
£100 and three points is the Fixed Penalty which may be offered instead of the matter being dealt with in court. Fixed Penalties are normally offered up to 95mph in a 70mph limit and 85mph in a 60 mph limit.
It is probably more dangerous to always be looking at the speedo better to look ahead.
Please note that at no point during this work was the kettle ever put out of commission and no chavs were harmed during the making of this post.
Or you could learn to drive properly... including being able to maintain a fairly steady speed without constantly looking at the speedo; knowing your vehicle well enough to judge whether you are speeding up by other cues such as engine note; being able to hold a memory of what is happening around you for the half-second it should take to look at the speedo - stuff like that...
