Report Aaaaagh! First speeding nick for 27 years in Lotus / Motoring / Cars Chat Posted February 20, 2009 · Edited February 20, 2009 by russellbosier Good advice there Toby. My license is clean at the moment so to be honest, rather than be 'flagged' it is probably best just to accept it. I sent my license off to get an address change a couple of days before, so am waiting for that back before replying to save any wheres your license problems. It says I have 28 days to respond. Good luck with your case Gary. The only other time I got points was a few years ago. I was driving along a quiet A road about midnight through the country and it was a pitch black night. I wasn't going that fast, around 60, so not even breaking the limit. A car came flying up behind me, tailgated me, and all I could see was his headlights. I reacted and sped up, and then he put his flashers on. He told me he chased me because he thought I was driving too fast along a dangrous road. I was 25 and driving a year old calibra 4x4 turbo at the time. He then accused me of nicking it, then of drinking and tried to make me say I had been, a number of times. He then breathalised me which proved him wrong, so then did me for 75 when he was tailgating me. Sounds stupid to speed up, but it was such a dark night it was impossible to tell it was a cop car. He must have been doing well over a ton to catch me up so quickly and for no reason. I was not happy.
