Customer Question

My letter from Cumbria constabulary states they intend to take proceedings against me for doing 82mph on motorway. Does this mean more than a fine and points or a proper prosecution

I presume this was a 70 mph zone?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

They will offer either the fixed penalty of 3 points and a fine of £100 or the speed awareness course.

This is under 90 mph which is the cut off point for the higher penalties in a 70mph zone.

There is no need to worry.

Can I clarify anything for you?
