Just don't understand the mentality of the slightly over speeders going to court and paying more in costs and a bigger fine, just cough up the fixed penalty and be done with it you will never win a speeding ticket.

35mph in a 30 zone and he got total fines of £305??? That's more than the bloke who had illegal possession of two firearms! And more than the man caught doing 46 in a 30 zone. Something is wrong with this world.
