I think winter is a depressing time of year as well Tim. You are driving in the dark at both ends of the day. Two tickets in a month is a depressing thing too.
Do you have a chance to do a speed awareness course instead of points on the licence ? I was in a similar two tickets situation to you once. The worst part of it was sticking religiously to all speed limits for the next two years for fear of losing my licence and my job too.
Nowadays I don't give a damn but strangely find that the speed limits coincide with the sort of speed I want to drive at.

Something will turn up it always does eventually I find.
The Joy of BX with just one Citroën to my name now. Will I sing Bye Bye to my GTI or will it be Till death us do part.

Hi John

The annoying thing is I dont drive fast, ive been done on mobile cameras where they have put a temporary limit in place, (40mph on a clear motorway and 50mpht through roadworks where there is no one around and its late) I admit I wasn't paying attention, mainly down to work pressures and being stuck in jams. I set the cruise at 70 on the motorway and watch as the Rang Rovers and BMW speed past! I've gone from 0-6 points within 3 months and if I get anymore I could loose my job. #-o
