About 12 years ago. Caught by a camera doing 82 in a 50 mph area. Automatic magistrates appearance. Chief magistrate said they were minded to ban me, I managed to convert this to a 750 fine and 3 points after ‘mitigating circumstances’ and ‘circumstances surrounding the event’. Called the insurance company and told them, endorsement code on licence was SP30. They weren’t interested, no increase in premiums.

PS. Serious advice to all, if you find yourself in a similar position to me get all the points off your licence before a court appearance if you can. Even if they are ‘spent’ previous endorsements will be taken into account. Trust me on this one.
