Got had twice, April 05 on an NSL dual carriageway (Avon ring road) then again in September 05 on the M5 in Worcs.

Due to an administrative cock-up Alien & Sinister put SP60 on my license rather than SP30. After reading the info on various forums I contacted them to get this changed to the correct code - but when it came back that code had vanished from the printed copy of my license. So currently only 3 points for SP50.

Both times by an unmarked car chasing revenue. Should have gone the unknown driver Nick Freeman special!

6 Points - both from the same camera van on Marlow Hill Northbound, High Wycombe. 37mph & 39mph.

The limit on that stretch of road is now 40mph. :(

Passed car test in 91, no points yet. Got grizzled at in Ohio for speeding in a Chevy S10 2.8, and only had an international drivers licence, he said don't do it again, I didn't. Speeding in a 2.8 S10 is not easy.

Got pulled up in Shrewsbury at 4:30 am on a John Deere 7700. "where are you going?" Back to the yard, I've run out of shear bolts" "ok" nice

A rare case of a speed limit increase, then :o

Clean for me too. Keep thinking it's only a matter of time before I get tapped up for flash cash.

Had 3 for a due care 12 years ago, thats it. Was 18 and silly then, but in mitigation, I did pass my driving test on friday the 13th.

No points.

Started driving in 1981, (did hire one though from Bournemouth to get to London to go flying with Capitol Radio :D ), but, only got my first car in late '84 after starting work (in London).

I have adopted over the years, better vision and awareness strategies, improved my knowledge, skills and abilities and try and believe that I have a good approach and attitude. :D
edited for clarity.

No points since 1989 when I was stopped riding my 125 home after someone nicked the L plates.

Drive for a living, average about 75,000 miles a year.
