speed limit was 70mph it was on the motorway M62
thanks Jo. We will just have to keep our fingers crossed I guess. He is a young county golf player and needs to travel round the country so I cant believe he has done this. Lets hope it will be a shock to him and teach him a lesson without it being too harsh and result in revocation of his licence.
The police officer told him that he would probably get a speed awareness course but I am doubtful when travelling so fast. There was no-one on the motorway and he just didn't realise that his speed had crept up, I suppose that is the lack of experience.
How long will he have to wait to hear anything?
Sorry to leave so much time between replies. I am working at the moment.....
