Sorry for the delay. This was 70mph? Not a reduced section?
Do you have any other points?
If this is a 100 mph spot on in a 70 mph zone then it would only attract between 4 -6 points or a short ban of between 7 - 28 days. They wouldn't normally ban immediately but it is at the higher end of the bracket so I would brace yourself for 6 points.
There would also be a fine of between 75 - 125% of your weekly income, costs of £85, a court charge of £180 and the victim surcharge of roughly 10% of the fine which will be used to encourage more attention seekers to report nonsense in the hope of getting compensation.
A ban is very unlikely.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Net. It is your disposable income. I would have expected him to stop you but it is possible that they could send a NIP out by post.
It depends how it is measured. If this was a VASCAR device then it can be done over a very short distance. If it was measured by reference to his own speedometre then there does need to be a distance but only sufficient for him to be able to say that he travelled behind you and neither gained upon you or lost you whilst noticing his own speed was X. Although that does not take long.
No problem and all the best.
