Hello

I wonder if anyone can help, I was driving last night towards Peterborough on the A605 Dual Carrigeway having crossed over the A1. I was flashed by a temporary camera doing approximately 65-70mph, i had no idea that there was a 40mph temporary restriction in place. And was unaware of the speed of the restriction until i came to another camera half a mile further down the road.

I have driven along this dual carrigeway more times than i can remember but was unaware of any roadworks.

It was approx 10pm at the time and no workers were around and no other vehicles in view. As all the speed signs appear correct i can only say i didnt notice them due to tunnel vision having been driving a couple of hours in the dark, not an excuse i know..

As this will be my first offence, can anyone give me an idea of what to do, what my next steps should be, if theres anyway to avoid fines and penalty points if a NIP appears on my door step, and what are the likely penalties i might receive.

Thanks

Michael
