Gutted for ye fella, 60 fine and 3 point's, think you will be able to take em in you're name, but ya mum will get them first because she own's the car, then you will have to admit liability or summit...

Never had a speeding ticket so dont really know how it work's to be honest. Am sure Audi will confirm.

But remember, it may not even have film in, so don't stress too much until you actually recieve the notice, should be within the next 2 weeks if you are gonna get done for it iirc.

Around Merseyside, only 24% of speed cam's are actually active/got film at any one time, so ye got a 1 in 4 chance of getting fooked. Although if it flashed, I dunno if inactive one's still flash, I would assume they probably do though to shit driver's up/remind them not to speed... would make sense!

I take it you don't use that motorway much then, that camera has been there since the beginning of time! So many crashs are caused by it though - through people slamming on and sliding/skidding - ironic eh!

Gutted for you though. frown

Not sure if this is urban myth or not, but someone on another forum i use maintains the database that issues points when you get caught.
Pay the fine by cheque if 60 send one for 61, you'll get a refund cheque for 1, DO NOT CASH IT!
The system supposedly is unable to issue points until the ballance has been settled.

Worth a try.

The car's in his mum's name... am I right in assuming his mum will get the point's first, then he will have to admit liability and take them?

Don't think he want's his mum to find out from the sounds of things lol!

first it has to flash twice,then two photos have to be produced by the police before they can prosecute, without these they have no case, only one in 10 cameras have actually got a camera in as they get rotated round as each camera costs 20,k. the penalty will be issued to the car owner and they reply on the form in the section stating they were not driving but are aware who was.

the not so legal way of doing thing is

1. put a bus/truck tyre round the camera filled with newspaper and oil and fire it!!

2.go put brand new plates on your car and say its been sat a few days to the police and some one has swiped the old plates off it!!

you could get anything from 3 to 6 points for it. what kind of road was it and was the speed limit clearly indicated (rob the signs)

hope this helps, and yes I have been through one or three thousand my self.

P.S snoopers can be bought from 40 sqiud on ebay

Im afraid that "one in 10 camera's" statistic is untrue; the safety partnership's released the figure's ages ago, and if I can find the magazine they were reviewed in where i read about the 24% figure in Merseyside being active at any one time ill post it; that is 1 in 4 which rule's out the 1 in 10 dont have camera's in.

Also, the 24% figure meanrs that 24% are active/have film in, not that only 24% have camera's in; they would deactivate say 2 camera's, and then re-activate 2 camera's elsewhere to ensure the level stay's at 24%.

Some area's of the country were even higher... although a lot were lower; I seem to recall London only had a figure of summit like 14%, but then there are that many around there, that's probably a damn big number lol grin
