can an off duty police man (if thats what he is) give you points for speeding on him guessing you were, what happened was i came home to find the road blocked with cars people generally fannying about, eventually they all move, and i admit i put my foot down, but the distance i travelled was about 100 yards, i never got to the speed limit, i stops and find one of the nieghbours at my side with a police jumper on ranting about me doing 60mph down the street and giving me three points, i said yes i accelerated quick but was not doing 60 or anywhere near it, so he really got angry shouting about if i want to argue the toss, so im asking could he have given me points for doing a speed he guesses

dont think he had any calibrated equipment as he was in his own car, for all i know he bought the jumper off ebay, he worked for BT last i knew, but he doesnt live here just comes to visit his ex and kids as he ran off with some foreign bint of titnternet,

perhaps he has magic speed camera eyes :crazy: , they want fixing as they are about 40 mph out mind

Makes no odds, they should only be used when neccasery and never in daylight, they've had a crackdown on them around here lately, fixed penalty fine handed out for misuse.

I know your road, and i know there is no way you can do 60mph down it.Its a bloody cul-desac with a slamon course to beat!!!

Tell the copper (tosser) to go forth and multiply.

You can be given points by a single copper based on his/her opinion, even if they have no speedo/lazer, etc. It can be purely based on his/her professional opionion that you were speeding.

very highly unlikely now and if you was, chose the go to court option and you will get off.
