Hi welcome to Just Answer. Thanks for your question.
You're looking at 3 - 6 points if you end up in Court with this, although you're likely to be offered a fixed penalty of 3 points if you accept the offence and deal with this by post.
3 or 6 points Max
is there no danger of driving without due care/ dangerous driving?
Not simply for speeding, no.
Oh you went around to the left?
Okay. Well, still, not necessarily. It's likely to just be a speeding offence.
ok - 40 zone - what speed would i get away with 3 versus 6 points?
I expect 3.
I expect you'll be offered a fixed penalty.
at 65 mph, 3points?
at 75, 3 points?
(dont know how fast i was going)
75 might be pushing it .... you're more likely to be sent to Court for 30mph over the limit. 20mph you might get away with a fixed penalty. Each police force has different policies, although you can contact them ask what their policy is.
north west uk - what's policy?
Don't know - you'd need to ask them.
how do i ask them?
Give them a call tomorrow, ask to speak to central ticket office, and they will tell you.
and at 75mph that would be 6 points presumably?
Yes, more like it.
points (topping up) stay valid for 3 years
no danger of court summons vis a vis the undertake?
No, I don't believe so.
if court summons do i just do the usual and delay time wise
keep a diary of when and how i use my car?
If you get a summons, that's it - you have to deal with it.
any more advice - other than drive within the speed limit?!
:) Not really! Sorry, if they have evidence of you speeding, you're likely to just have to accept it!
And slow down :)
I hope this answers your question. If you need further information, either now or later, just let me know and I'll gladly help out.
Please do remember to rate my answer as highly as you can for me. Thank you.
