    Just tell them your car must have been cloned.
    No way a honest law abiding motorist would consider such a thing "I didn't know my car could even go that fast your honour".

    Yeah, man - let's go to Amsterdam! We could be like Thelma 'n' Louise.... Well maybe not then.....

    Seriously though - guess who's going to have to pay for this ****?? Yeah that's right - us ****ers! UK motorists pay for pretty much ******* everything. The excuses range from congestion, pollution, blah blah - ******* ****s like Prince Charles and Tony Blair can babble on about pollution whilst racking up their free air miles but everyday people have to bear the brunt of anything that needs to be paid for.

    So the official line is crime and terrorism. Well, as far as Blair is concerened, it takes one to know one...... This technology will also have the ability to work out average speeds over a given distance.....and let's face it - everyone speeds here - even police officers. If they really wanted, they could be on to a real ******* goldmine too......

    I mean the whole point of terrorism is to make us change our way of life. Every time we remove another freedom, we are goose stepping one step closer to losing the fight
    Terrorism sure makes it easy for the government to take away our civil rights. Meanwhile Osama is free and the oil rich land of Iraq is somewhat secure.

    Terrorism can never be defeated, it's a tactic. A cheap and simple one. It will be with us forever.

    As for anyone who thinks this is a good idea, I have a question for you- do you come to a full and complete stop at a stopsign? No one does here, it's doesn't cause problems and the cops have more important violations to go after. Now if a computer could watch you at the stopsigns and you didn't stop, what the hell, have the computer start sending out fines, it's like free money with no police work involved.

    I already have, I left the UK 5 years ago. I saw this coming. Under president blair we are well on track to a police state in the uk where not being pc will get you arrested, crime is rampant (how if its a police state?) and legal uk citizens are out of work because the illegal immigrants have got all the jobs. What little money you have left after the high taxes doesn't get far cos everything is so sodding expensive.

    Mind you, I'm now in the US and have GW and his fascist hordes to worry about now. Now I've lost my job as it was outsourced to India and have now found out unemployment benefits are pitiful.

    Doesn't look like you've done badly under GW and the US economy (i'm referring to your vette)

    Speaking of this, i read in the papers a few weeks ago the government are thinking of upping the speed limit on motorways from 70 to 80 mph....

    Could this be the first and only logical thing the labour government have ever done???!!

    80 is the minimum that most people will drive at anyway - the only difference is that police will now cruise the inside lane at 79.99mph instead of 69.99mph!!
