Good News indeed ! Let's hope they reap a good harvest of uninsured, untaxed and expired MOT vehicles for crushing.

Why beware? If your car is taxed/mot'd/insured/road legal/roadworthy and you have a valid licence/not over the limit/under the influence of drugs/carrying drugs/carrying weapons etc etc then I don't see the problem.

Thanks Madrob-wouldn't have wanted to get a speeding ticket for 31 mph and wasted police time that they could have used investigating criminal damage, burglary, theft, assault, murder, fraud, vandalism, etc.

31mph eh? Right... "You will be taken to the place from whence you came. From there be taken to a place of execution. You shall be hung by the neck until the body be dead" etc. etc.

Seems fair enough to me ! grin

General rule is +10%, so 31mph would get you nothing I'm afraid. Traffic/RPU do these Ops so as a general rule, deal with traffic, not "investigating criminal damage, burglary, theft, assault, murder, fraud, vandalism, etc".

There is a chance that they may well do what you ask about "investigating criminal damage, burglary, theft, assault, murder, fraud, vandalism, etc" just by doing one of these random stops.

I shall repeat the same statement I do every time a bollocks warning post like this is rolled out - would you feel the same if that *one* driver that wasn't pulled over, who was uninsured/had no licence/was drunk/under the influence of drugs etc, just happened to plough said vehicle into someone you love or a member of your family, or you/your car? No you wouldn't!! You'd sit & moan about how they should be out catching people who drink drive/drive under the influence of drugs/have no insurance/no licence etc!

You can't have it all ways! They're doing a job. It takes a few minutes of your time if you have nothing to worry about.

Strewth!

Shouldn't be worried about doing '34mph' but very worried that police resource is not more directed at known criminals committing most of the serious crime. Not so easy though.

You're missing my point Poppet. How do you think these "known criminals" committing most of the "serious crime" get around the country!?! They don't get the bus or walk do they? They drive round in their expensive or "normal"/clapped out cars.

There is a chance that some of these "known criminals" were known to have been going about their illegal business today, in a particular area.

Things will only get worse re: crime as the numbers of Police are further slashed. The Government can manipulate the crime levels as much as they like, but it boils down to the fact that less Police = less crime detected = reduced confidence in the Police = less people reporting crime or helping the Police with information which eventually = crime is going down!! If crime is going down, we need less Police, so they can further slash the numbers or, as is already happening, they privatise stealthily through the back door, therefore removing the Police altogether so they can be replaced by firms that MP's have shares or interests in.

Can't be any clearer than that really. This isn't fantasy, this is fact! It's been happening for a while!

Perhaps we need to think what constitutes serious crime.
Surely driving under the influence(of alcohol or drugs,without tax and/or without current MOT and therefore not insured cannot be called anything less than serious crime.Consider the consequences of no insurance.
I believe that speeding is something that depends to some extent on the circumstances.In a built up area I think 30mph is usually too fast but on a motorway in good conditions then 80mph is often acceptable.
