    Today I heard another mention of speeding bringing a prosecution if only 1mph above the limit.

    Remember, when driving, do not be distracted by what is happening on the road, keep your eyes on the speedometer, it's what the police want.

      I had an Audi in the 1970s. The local dealer's knuckle-draggers could never get the timing right on the ignition so I did it myself.

        Had a gen 1 Audi TT, great little car, regret getting rid of it. Dealers were a bit up themselves though!

          My view exactly.

          Maybe if we had a blanket 30 MPH limit we could do away with driving tests, MOT's, insurance, airbags and seat belts because accidents would never happen.

          I actually think that rigid adherence to speed limits causes more problems than it solves owing to dangerous bunching on motorways, but the authorities cannot see that.

          The authorities also seem to have lost sight of why people drive in the first place; to get from A to B as quickly and efficiently as possible. If we all got on the trains or buses as they seem to want the country would grind to a halt on the first day!

            I've got the same engine in my Skoda VRs - it goes like stink. I drove for 50 years with an unblemished driving record. Within 6 months of getting the VRs I was 3 points from a ban!

            By far the best car I've ever owned.

                My TT* got me into huge trouble in France, got done for speeding and was marched to the cash dispenser for cash to pay the fine, couldn’t withdraw enough so had to stay in local hotel and get more in morning (after phoning bank for limit increase). Banned from driving in France, so wifey had to drive my precious TT back to ferry port, first time driving on ‘wrong’ side. Boy, that was a frosty couple of hundred miles, that’s for sure. As soon as we entered the ferry port gates we swapped back, much to my relief.

                * I suspect it was my driving rather than the car itself!

                  I know that feeling all too well.

                  The first time SWMBO took over driving the current Jag we were on the M6, which was thankfully quiet at the time. We had cruise control set at 70-ish, but she didn't like passing other cars slowly so booted it. 'Aww I like the feel of this' she said with a big grin. 'Now I know why you like driving it so much'. 'Yes' I replied, 'but have you any idea how fast you are driving!'

                    My wife loved the TT and I’ve never heard the last of letting it go. My episode in France was a simple money making exercise I’m convinced. Yes I was ‘making progress’ but the roads were clear, visibility was perfect and conditions were ideal. I reckon I must have paid for one hell of a Christmas party that year in that particular station!
