    Good luck! Hopefully they won't make a big deal out of it, if they do ask you to go to court, get a duty solicitor to represent you (free)

    Yeah, cos 37mph over the speed limit is OK in other areas...

    Just as a reference, I got 6 points and a £360 fine for 85 in a 50 ten years ago. If I hadn't pleaded financial hardship for potential loss of licence, I would have got at least a 30 day ban.

    Wow that's pretty harsh to get such a judgement for 85mph!

    Did you do that on a country road in london or outside? Kent are quite strict in these things

    lucky you don't live here.

    97mph = 156kmh

    max state limit 110. 45kmh over limit

    Fine: A$2350 (1350 pounds) + 6 month minimum disqualification (If you are lucky and don't end up in court which is usually a longer disqualification) 6 demerits when you get your license back (max of 12 for 3 years)

    Double demerits apply on public holidays, so you can lose it a second time before you get it back. You also get extra if you do that speed in a school zone. An extra point and $154
    Never let the truth get in the way of a good story

    If you use text speak on this forum you WILL get an infraction.

    Believe it or not, what has a 'h' in it and you is not spelt 'u'

    In Finland, speeding fines are entirely income-linked (using the correct logic that the fine should hurt the offender equally regardless of income). The highest fine here for 80kmh (50mph) in a 40kmh (25mph) limit was €170000 (£116000). The guy earned €10.25M (£7M). This equates to about €510 if you earned €30000. 14 years ago... The speeding tolerance for on-the-spot fines is now being reduced to 7kmh over the limit (4.5mph).

    When you earn that much, you probably wouldn't care.

    In a way. Imagine if the fine was only €500 like the average Joe though. It is still very fair though. If, for example, you only earned 10000, the fine would be 165...

    A former chairman of Nokia who got fined in the highest fines complained and appealed. It only got reduced 5%.
