I got stopped or waved in should I say by a hair dryer dude on the N11 years ago and was done for 97 in a 60 zone, said he caught me on the slow down
2 points and 80 Euro, didn't see him until he more or less jumped out in front of me

That's what I thought and it is probably true but since he was able to show me 97 in a 60 and I know it is true I was caught slowing down I thought better to just pay the 80 and take the 2 points rather than end up in court

The new/er Laser type detectors have no problem locking on to pretty much anything. Certain amount of operator skill required.

This? Again?

Yes you are doomed. All motorcyclists give off a pheremone which the speed radar gun detects. This means they can completely bypass the traditional method of following you, requesting you stop, and taking your details so they can issue a fixed penalty notice.

Joking aside,
The "camera van" has a "camera" inside the "van" which records your speed, and a photo which is evidence of you speeding at that location.

The Garda sitting in a cage, chelsea tractor or even motorcycle does not have this technology. They have to follow you, stop you and issue the fixed penalty notice. They won't do this uness you are acting like a plonker. Or if your tax disk has fallen in front of your number plate, and they will follow you to draw your attention to this.

If your speedo says you were doing over 120, you werent. There is no such thing as the 125km/h limit.
Did you get your licence in a lucky bag?
