    Angry I got banned from driving today and fined £500.

    At least the ban is only for 3 weeks.
    What a nightmare though, having to rely on my gf for lifts everywhere!
    Having said that she's being fantastic about it - she's taking me to the gym tomorrow.

    How do you get banned? Is that like having your license revoked?

    Not sure of how it works over there.........

    I got caught doing 104mph - over 100mph is an automatic ban.

    It's crazy how it works though:

    - If you exceed the limit by 30mph or more (in my case 104mph in a 70mph zone) it's an automatic ban of 7 - 28 days and a fine but no points on your license.

    - Any other speeding offences (i.e. over the limit but not by as much as 30mph) and you get points (usually 3) and a fine.

    - If you accumulate 12 or more points they call it "totting" and you get banned for 6 months!

    In my case I have 11 points on my license already so by getting caught at 104mph I got banned from driving for 21 days (if I get caught driving during that period I go to jail) but had I been caught doing 94mph I would have got 3 points and a fine taking me over 12 points by totting and been subsequently banned for 6 months!

    I couldn't quite get my head round it as I sat in the back of the cop car so I said to them "So, I'm better off with you guys having caught me at 104 than I would have been if you caught me at 90?"
    "In this case, yes" they admitted.

    Crazy isn't it?

    I explained this to some guys I work with and they all told me that I was talking shit and I started to think it was too good to be true so I checked with my solicitor and he confirmed it and today in court proved it!

    Gotta love the legal system!

    So the moral of the story is :

    "If your gona speed, do it at 104mph"

    Nice 1
