Strange how some people (not just you suss) bend stuff slightly to suit ther arguments isn't it. Most frequently done by poletitions.
The first of the 'fatal four' is 'Inappropriate Speed', not 'speeding'

Only if you decide to exceed the set limit and pay for your decision. Travelling any road can be free for life.
I have never paid into this revenue source for one very good reason, I obey the set limits.

Why speed, what is the point ? I've had hundreds, probably more, where a driver has shot past me, well over the limit, and because they've not read the road properly, maybe because they're watching for cameras or Police, got channelled into the slowest lane ahead and I've ended up back in front.

Guilty as charged Laughing

However that means remembering the speed limit is the maximum and not a target, so drivers should be below if conditions dictate Wink

Depends entirely on the definition of inappropriate speed and the distinction between inappropriate speed and a speed which exceeds the set speed limit (illegal speed). The two are not necessarily the same.

Possibly caught out myself today, not remembering I was driving a small Transit Courier, which is classed as a N1, even though a lot smaller and less powerful than a car. On a 3 lane stretch of the A14 it is easy to forget in a small vehicle like mine that it is only able to do 60mph on a dual carriageway, even though 70mph on a motorway. Hence I trundled past the (not in the database) site all smug at 70mph, only realising 10 minutes later I would have been clobbered! They raised the lorry limit from 40mph to 50mph due to advances in technology, why not 70/ 70 for light vans? Sorry, I don't take the "not for revenue" stance, sometimes it is there to catch you out. My fault entirely, my mind must have been elsewhere. GPS might have saved me, if it is calibrated to know the difference between the vehicle it is fitted into.

Unfortunately it is a risk of the job these days, but one Christmas postal item i could without RM delivering Rolling Eyes

Iíd guess a mobile van is unlikely to pursue you for exceeding 60 on a dual carriageway - they may not have the confidence (or. Speed of recognition) to define you as not a Car Derived Van under 2,000kg.

My Kangoo van is CDV, but some Kangoos do exceed the 2,000kg and you canít tell just by looking.
