David. You may be able to keep your licence clean. If you ring them up you may be able to go on a speed awareness course. You have to pay for it but it is in place of the fine and points.
And well done for stopping in time earlier.
They've offered me this, Pauline, but apart from the £100 fixed penalty charge, it will cost another £80 for the 2 hr course....so in view of the fact I don't make a habit of this, I've decided to take the 3 points. I know there's no excuses, but oh dear...just a steady walking pace over 30 mph.
You see what a good boy I am, notifying my insurance company of the incident, they tell me my insurance increase will be only £25 per year.......compare this with my 20 yo granddaughter's £130 pm with a gizmo fitted in her car too.
I have to say that in the area of the 'pram' incident the speed limit is 20 mph......if they annoy anyone who may consider them to be too slow, I reckon this particular one may have saved this baby's life.
