Had Mr police man stick his radar gun on me today doing 80 on a dual carriageway .
1st time in 4 years since ive been nicked .
Was expecting to be stopped further on by a patrol car as it was a hand held radar that you put upto your eye.

Maybe he just wanted a couple of good shots at the car as I certainly didn't slow down ,infact i put my hand up to acknowledge i'd seen him .

Ahh well at least I know that the car is boosting well with the decat pipe that was fitted this morning.

Using Road Angel 1 &2 and the Snooper S4.

Doubt it Bex the Pc swang around as if he were doing a piroet.
May be i was too fast for him .
Perhaps the glare from my shades blocked the lense.
May be he''ll get to catch a burglar and forget about me .
May be the world square .

Looks like a fine for moi i'm afraid.

That's quite interesting!!! My speedo is pretty accurate, just a couple mph out, but on the high side. I know a couple of people with VIII's and their speedo's are really out, again on the high side :D

Hence, I never really drive looking at the speedo I use the Road Angel instead :cool:

I was expecting to be pulled in .
Although he caught me late 60's tops on a dualer isn't it .

Your damned lucky to get away with it ..

If it had been a motorway i wouldn't worry .

If it was a 60 limit you will be done, if it was a 70 you should be okay due to the speedo inaccuracy and the fact they "allow" up to 79 before doing you.

(I have just been done for 81 on a m/way, as my cruise control was set to 85, but was actually 81 due to the inaccuracy)
I now have a snooper & sit at 79. :mad:
