On my commute to work there are loads of speed camera's.I think I might have passed one doing 65 in a 60 zone,it was a A road.I drive a 125 and have cbt licence,so I'm just wondering if any knows what kind of points system etc is used for cbt drivers for speeding ? and also how fast would I have to be going to be charged for speeding ?

you'll be alright mate,if yer speedo was showing 65 yr actual speed will be under that " />
hope so only been riding it for a few weeks, shame there was'nt a strong wind blowing to slow me down lol
In all fairness
The things don't trigger on the dot of the speed limit. If they did, though, you'd have got 3 points. If you're a new licence holder they take it off you at 6 points. Not sure about CBT though.
Learn now to keep a sharp eye out for the pesky things.
I normally do I was overtaking a car,when I saw the white lines on the ground,I slowed down,but not sure if I got caught,it's annoying that there's so many on that A road.
If you slowed down to 60 as soon as you passed the first white line you'll be OK as your average speed between the two photos will be 63 which I guess they won't bother with unless the guy checking the photos has had a bad day. Reportedly, most speed cameras don't have any film in them at a given time.
Plus, if your speedo is anything like the one on my CBF125 it's up to 10% overreporting your speed.
congratulations on getting yer 125 up to 65.
My understanding of the camera's told to me by a copper was;
The white lines on the road represent 5 miles an hour.
It takes a picture as you pass it then a specified time later. So there for every white line you pass represents 5 miles an hour.
Also they have a 10% leeway and maybe another bit on top (I know its 10% but not 100% sure on the bit on top).
HA HA HA....
