I am on a speed awareness course next week and just got another one in the post today for 57 in a 50.

Been flashed numerous times in the link though and never had anything come through.

I have a good feeling that you might be asked to go on a Speed Awareness Course if they get you. One is allowed +10% + 2-3 mph I am told over the limit. In your case, say, 36mph. So not that bad. Fingers crossed.

Feel for you.

John it is very likely you will be offered the Speed Awareness Course (about 3 hours of falling asleep), you will have to pay a fine of around 100 you will NOT get any points!!

You should be fine.
