Re: 3 Points for speeding

Has anyone here ever gone to court and contested points?

Fools game, but yeah got a strikeout cos he didn't show. Still had brief to pay off at the end of day. Id never have gotten that strikeout but for that brief as the judge was so keen to defer the hearing.

As a matter of interest, strikeout simply means case was not heard, prosecuter can always re-submit the case to the court for hearing at a later date.

I'd very interested to hear this myself. Got gunned on Saturday and in my opinion it was a bit iffy.

I was stopped myself yesterday. I have an idea of what i did but the garda never told me why i was pulled. He was too busy grinning over the fact i never copped the unmarked blue ford kuga he was driving (between sallins and clane for anyone around there).

I was told i was getting a fine but he couldnt tell me how much. He told me i was getting points but couldnt tell me how much off the top of his head either. Also having my insurance cert on my phone wasnt acceptable so i had to produce that at my local station. My local station is rarely open which i explained to him so i asked could i drop it to the nearest bigger station local to me that i knew was always attended and he didnt like that either.

All very odd

Got sniped myself back in August in the cage. Last of a line of about 4 cages and he picked me out. M11 Motorway just before it joins the N11! never had any points ever and felt hard done by at 106 in an 80 on a motorway I thought was a 100. Still over the limit so took the points

They are shooting fish in a barrel along that stretch.

You'd be wrong. You're innocent until you're found guilty (allegedly, which is also bullshit), so until the courts find you guilty, or you're stupid enough to admit it, there's nothing to tell the insurance company.

Not until I was stupid enough to say it was me, or was found guilty in court, no.
