  1. The irony is that it was probably a reasonable place to speed... :LOL:


    A SENIOR executive at a speed camera firm was banned from driving for six months today after admitting speeding at more than 100m/h (161km/h) on a 70m/h (113km/h) limit dual carriageway.

    Tom Riall, a divisional chief executive at Serco, was recorded driving at 103m/h (166km/h) in his blue Volvo on the A14 in Newmarket, Suffolk, just before 1pm on January 4.

    Riall was sentenced at a hearing at Sudbury Magistrates' Court, the Press Association reported.

    Riall is head of Serco's Home Affairs division, which has installed Gatso speed cameras at around 4500 sites around Britain since 1992.
  2. Proof that there is a God....
  3. Nice one!
  4. poor guy :grin:

    O well, at least we can now say the law applies to everyone (or at least to him) :?
  5. Rough Justice.
  6. You know the kind of guy, who runs a speed camera company, makes millions of dollars off them and the gets pinged by his own invention? Karma, im just trying to be a better person.

    My Name is Tom.
  7. So was he nailed by a copper or by one of his own cameras? :grin:

    BTW, 30 mph over has been an automatic ban in the UK for as long as I can remember. Didn't used to be 6 months though.
