Hi, all! I just had my first notice of a traffic violation come through the post. I have been driving for fifteen years, but only riding for one year. I am a bit anxious as I can’t recall if a new rider loses the license by receiving six points (only) in two years, or by exceeding six points. Does anyone know?
They did me for riding 46mph in a 30mph. I know all of the cameras and I was surprised, so it might be a police van. However, on the way in to work today, I noted that the only camera on Millbank is a camera that has been minus the white distance marking lines on the road for ages, as they recently re-surfaced the road. I have already admitted that I ride the bike, but I thought it would be worth asking for proof as the white markings have not been re-painted for very long. I might get lucky!
I am not sure what the usual procedure is for this. I suspect that they will mail me a ticket once I send in the form saying that I was riding. Is this correct?
