The sun is shining I have just washed my car and all is/was well with the world... Then I opened a letter and noticed the "Cumbria Constabulary" heading and instantly I knew what was coming.. Ooooh didums I was doing 49mph on the A591 in Cumbria 9 WEEKS AGO.. So dont go feeling all smug with yourselves if you were caught on camera and 3 weeks has elapsed and you havent received a brown envelope.. Remember the country is FU**ED and it needs all the money it can get from so called safety cameras.. They are going to allow me to attend a so called speed awareness course.. I have done one before about 6 years ago.. It taught me nothing other than how to cough up £70 just to escape the 3 points.. I remember well the copper sat in the car with me and the other 2 "criminals" and he passed the clipboard to each of us to allow us to write our "Positive comments in our own words".. Thats not on! They should at least send the questionaire to our homes and allow us to write in privacy without him sat there watching like a Vulture! No excuses but.. My history is 34 mph in a 30 6 years ago.. Now no matter how scathing some of you may be I hardly am a hardened speed freak that does a ton everywhere.. There is a young **sehole who lives down our lane that is one of these so called boy racers.. He actually killed a cyclist about 5 years ago.. Is he banned or locked up?? NEITHER !! Daddy is rich and got a Barrister on the job and he is still driving like a loonatic.. He is one of the 80mph pratts we see/hear screaming around here at night. Not to worry.. Just dont ever walk or ride a bike when he is out playing in his souped up clio sport ! Its ironic that I had the SL for 3 months and 4,000 miles and never had a problem then on the 2nd day of owning the E class I get collared.. It really winds me up.. We get little boy racers around here that do 80 - 90 and more in a 40 area and NEVER get done! Yes LEGALLY speaking I was "speeding" MORALLY I was NOT ! Last time 6 years ago I was doing 34mph on the main dual carriageway that goes into Blackpool.. Some bright spark has made that road 30mph..I used to live on that road and it was originally 60mph ! If that isnt fishing for money I dont know what is !
