Caught up behind a small Fiat a couple of weeks ago - woman adjusting her makeup, hair etc. Single carriageway road. Eventually road opened to two carriageways on a hill. Foot down to get past her - car took off like a rocket. I knew that there was a fixed speed camera further down the road in a 30mph zone. As I crested the hill my car still going fast as I entered the 30mph zone. Then got caught by a police 'safety camera' van some distance before the fixed camera. Braked hard when I saw the van but too late. Received letter from Thames Valley Police and sent in letter pleading guilty - 42mph in ther 30mph zone. Any idea what fine/points I may get? Was not offered the speeding course as too far over the limit!
