Motorist using a laser jammer to fool speed detection equipment sent to jail for 3 months and £1500 fine, I remember toying with the idea of one of these about 15 years ago, I have never heard of anyone being convicted of successfullly using one. To me the harsh sentence is obviously to have a deterrent effect on other motorists.

To think an elected MP who repeatedly lied about not driving her vehicle was also given 3 months gaol rolleyes

Well yes... the general idea is probably that if you don't have an illegal jammer, you might drive with a bit more regard to the speed limit?

Aye, rightly or wrongly this sort of offence really doesn't deem a custodial sentence in my view. Far severe crimes are treated more lenient. The motorist is treated like a cash cow in every turn, & nobody can change my way of thinking.


I'm an old git & happy with it,most of the time
