Tainboy speaks the truth.
Besides how could the police prove if you have or havenot been away from your home address? Surely everybody can claim they've been on summer holidays in june/july
I've got a book about it which I got from the back of the topgear mag, it is quite good and informative.
I did read somewhere that there is a guy who has started to work as a Lawyer specialising in speedin cases because he found out that all speed detectors must be home office approved and that some of the police ones aren't.
That 50zone has been there for aslong as I can remember everyone always tries to race my dad when it turns to 70 again.
Both my brothers and my dad constantly speed but only my mum has been caught speedin at 70 on the A947 whereas Dad has been well over a tun
While I'm not doubting what Tainboy says, is it really worth the hastle?
A couple of years ago I was caught speeding near Stonehaven (80 odd in a 70 zone) and got caught by a fixed camera. I work abroad so when I got home the wife was going nuts as she had the coppers round 3 times when I'd been away!!! Obviously I was not at home to recieve the letter the sent and thought that I could spin it out a bit and they would forget about it. They came round when I was at home. I tried the old I want to see the photo, calibration certs, etc, they all arrived the next morning!
And it is down to you to provide them with the name of who was driving the car. If you can't then it is assumed it was you (as you are responsible as it is your car) the only way round this would be to have reported the car stolen at the time of the speeding offence.
i also paid over 20 quid for that frigging sh*te ebook about "how to avoid speeding fines, don't bother it's also a load of sh*te based on ENGLISH law, not Scottish.
In short, save yourself loads of hasstle and just accept the fine and penalty points. You shouldn't have been speeding excessively anyway!!!: - (
