There will be those that help the cops and there are those that won't, irrespective of how many speeding drivers are convicted. Its been going on for years and nothing will change things dramatically. Not even turning a blind eye to speeding.

Not sure about the automatic ban theory - the cases of David Beckham, Alex Ferguson et al would suggest that the judiciary make their mind up and sentence how they see fit. Looking at the strange judgements passed down (or not!!), I don't believe that there is a consistent, systematic approach to sentencing any motorists - cops or otherwise.

By the way, what happened to that Scottish bloke done for using his mobile phone at about 160 mph?
