    69mph in a 40 zone is it a ban or just points and fine?

      Well i got caught doing 64 in a 40 and only got points and fine, I think its only a ban if your doing double the speed limit or over a 100.

        anything over 30mph above the speed limiti is a ban - so you'll get points and a fine.

            Depends upon a number of issues not only the speed, the magistrates will have guidelines for differing speeds but can take into account, location, time of day, weather, etc and previous driving history, sometimes it is also better to ask the mags for a short ban as opposed to points and a large fine, have you taken legal advice?

                        Lets not turn this into a bad thread ....... yes 60+ is a bit much, but being honest the OP seems very sensible and hasn't bragged at all about it. We all do stupid things, but its how we learn from them that counts

                            Why say something like that, he was asking a genuine question, you mean you have never gone over the limit atall?????

                              Jog on sunshine I'm asking advice, I'm not saying it's right and I'm a big man for doing it but it happens and we all do it from time to time I just went a bit silly.
