getting started with stupid questions and a goal
sentencing guidance says consider a ban (usually 7-56days or more if nec ) or points + fine ( up to 2.5k ). probability is a ban as its over 100 ( 30mph above the limit makes ban first choice ). mitigation ( conditions/history/behaviour/collateral damage of punishment on others) might mean points instead - but usually a smaller ban.(cant get both ).
so if i was endangering others/drunk/etc or it was foggy/wet/rainy/etc than 2months on a bus or worse - more than 2 months you get to retake the test to get it back.
fortunately, it was dry/clear/empty road/daylight/sober/safe? so maybe a months ban at best as it is too bloody fast.
automatic ban is for totting ( 12 pts in 3 years ) so doesnt apply to me.
fines going to be heavy end of xxxx due to speed/motorway, noit 2.5k as they save that for the bikers and flash harry's who think 120+ is a challenge.
been an interesting hour since opening the mail. internet isnt just for bike porn.
should be in court around end of may. ban would be immediate from the day in court. might be sooner, could be later - but im not that lucky. probably be 6wks on the bus from the 31st of may for me.
cant wait to tell the boss.or my employer. thats not going to a quiet short conversation.
i dont think their is a muppet this stupid, dave
feel for you, hope its 1 month and not too large fine. We all have muppet moments.
Well I definatly have in the past, and I guess it won't be my last
you've gone very quiet Sgt, hope your set back hasnt put you off the great training progress youve made so far.
if you are banned at the time of both events might it be possible to get a lift for one of them or use the train?
A tad embarrased to be quite honest. a tad gutted too.
And the knee has just knitted back together. SO, I'm allowed to start running and what have you from tomorrow. ( what a pullover - stiches out, 1 good day, then wound opened after kneeling down. glue and butterflies later and a nice proper mans scab )
Im sticking at the training plan. a change in events. MAYBE, a late entry into something. it will depend on the fine and the ban and the consequences. considered a lift, or public transport, but right now hearts not in it - and irondistance needs a bit more than turning up.
of course, I might get points - in which case Ill be pawning the wetsuit and picking up lottery tickets while my luck is in.
noted. time to SUMO
Did I miss something here? A driving ban's a perfect opportunity to up your bike training isn't it? As Dave said, this isn't a knitting club. The PSOF mottos - JFDI and HTFU!
lol. HTFU it is then.
knit one, pearl one, run twice, bike once.....long bike tomorrow. hot bath tonight -=feeling a little stiff.
run twice and bike once.............. What on Thursday ?
Get your act together or we will send the boys round (or Meldy)
run wednesday, bike thusday, run this morning......please dont send the boys round. im in enough trouble
arrrgh. been summonsed sooner than expected, means ill probably be free to drive before the half outlaw and onwards.
bugger is I withdrew as I was rather sure I wouldnt be.
ill have to get through court, get the details and re-enter if possible/appropriate. may actually miss the DIY instead!
long bike today, long run tomorrow. day off yesterday. OH insisted on spring cleaning and 'helping around the house'
for me, an hour on the turbo is long right now.
an hour an 15 for the run in the morning.
indeed. looking forward to a lot of bike time shortly
