On my way for a game of golf earlier today i came from B&Q roundabout heading towards new brighton..

Just as the dual carraigeway goes to a 30 zone, on the bend, i was caught out by 2 policemen on a portable speed camera on a tripod..

Pulled me over and asked how fast i was goin etc, anyway got me out of the car and showed me how the camera works and my registered speed.

51 MPH

So he said they have got a lot on that bend its not easy to slow down, but he still gave me a fixed penalty..

He said today is the start of a huge clamp down, as we will see on granada tonight( As he said)

So a little warning for everybody keep your eyes out, i was caught on a blind bend, they are well hidden...

Last month all my nine points came off...

I now have six again gutted....

End of rant...

Why take the chance of sppeding through a speed camera, thinking its not working.........

Foolish matey, its simply not worth the gamble. Like playing russian roulette with your licence.

Thanks for the info as hopefully will benefit from your knowledge, it would be good to think some could come from all this bad your having mate.

p.s. Gutted for you, insurance wont be good upon re-newal smack

There were 2 laser guns in use last week in Bebington Road and also by the Wiend in Bebington.

I think they should also be target the people who sit in the 2nd/3rd lane on the motorway/dual carriageway doing 50-60mph, not overtaking any cars for miles and basically LANE HOGGING mad

I seen a bizzy on a bike with a speed gun by lever causeway (spelling) targeting people coming from prenton way, he'd of caught and gary if he hadn't of been letting a little kid have a go of his speed gun laugh

It was dark as well so there was no way of spotting him with him being so far ahead in the distance mad

absolut ********s the lot of them, i ve been workin in liverpool a lot lately, and the other day i clocked to pigs hiding in the trees on a middle island thing with a cam, that was in the mornin and they had pulled some one, on the way home same again, some one had been pulled over, so i recon this was a constant pulling thing, there fore on average 60 pound fine, one car every ten minutes, 360 and hour, 360 times an 8 hour shift, so thats £2880 subtract a further 360 as those little piggys need to have lunch, so its a grand total of £2520.

now thats just one little road in liverpool, can you imagine the sheer amount of money these ******* must raise, where does it all go, ill tell you, on land rover vogues so the fat pigs can fit in cars comFATably. pricks, thats all im saying. pigs.

to be fair they are only doing their job. *hides for cover*

i remember i was coming home from bhead towards tesco roundabout in bidston and in a 30 i was doing about 60ish, and flew past a plod car. he just pulled me over and had a word about hitting drunk people (as 3am on satday night) and how much itd wreck my car. so he was fair and he said he couldnt be arsed with the paperwork! smile
but i know some that would of well and truly shafted me for doing it!

adam, i went white after seeing him on his bike especially after weve just overtook someone! a big thanks to the little kids that were there, nie one lads! smile smile smile
