Do they? Really? I'm sure there are some that abuse the 20 limit but by that much? As for it being the best surface, is it still a cobbled street? I suspect that if we took away the tarmac and went back to the underlying cobbles nature would restrict speeding and no need for car ruining speed humps built everywhere.

Re: Electric Car Charger

speed bumps are so huge around here they get their own potholes in the middle of them

if theres a speed bump in a 30mph zone you should be able to drive over that speed bump at 30mph without wrecking your wheel or suspension , not have to hire a Sherpa to guide you over it

Just seen an article on Autocar online about speed cameras.
It says the guidance from the Association of Chief Police Officers is to prosecute if the driver is exceeding the limit by 10%+2 mph.
Mind you that's only guidance! I suppose each force sets it's own levels depending how much money it's supposed to raise.

I saw the charging bay being used yesterday. Not with an electric car though.

It says 10% + 3mph on the paper work I received last week.
I was doing 48 in a 40mph zone. The paper also says you are allowed to attend a speed awareness course if you had not exceeded 52mph in a 40 zone, after that it was a court appearance.
That in Lancashire.

What happens at a speed awareness course?
Do you have to accept you were speeding and now you're aware of it?
If so job done.

Re: Electric Car Charger

I don't know Si,
First offence (I've been caught for) in 57 years.
It costs 95 but saves getting points on the licence or the 100 fine.
I haven't nothing else on that day so it's trip out.
I wouldn't go if I had to loose a day's pay.
Always remember the last bit of the dual carraigway at the Nelson end of the Padiham by pass is 40moh and you won't get done.
I'll probably have to write that 100 times and stand on the naught step.
Where are you nowadays, I keep looking for your car so I can come in for a brew and another few lessons.

Re: Electric Car Charger

If you say sorry I am sure you will be fine. 95 ouch. Last time I got caught it was 60 fine plus points.

We are in most days, sadly my old car had to go and the old estate is due to go in a few weeks. Your always welcome to drop in mate. Just in case I will pm you my mobile number

Check with cashman, I'm sure he went on one and said it was OK.
You'll save a heck of a lot more than 95 on your insurance over 5 years as you're not done for speeding therefore no need to tell the insurance companies.
Wish I'd been able to go, cost me a bomb.

Re: Electric Car Charger

I wonder how long it will be before the Big Issue seller starts to plug an electric fire into the car charge point.
Or some bod tries to charge a mobile phone.
It's bound to happen.

Looks as though it is going to be as cost efficient as the "Click & Collect"
