I was done doing 35 over in a 60 zone in my Cooper S. Got the $590 fine and and I got slapped with a mandatory 3 month suspension. I accepted the fine but went to court and pleaded my case and got the ban reduced to a month instead. If you go to court to contest the infringement and don't win, you're screwed - $2200 fine and a six month ban. If you accept the fine then go to court to plead the points then they can't raise the ban or the fine so you'll be no worse off and may get it shortened. P.S. First post! Did the first day of the learners course today. Never ridden before - a bit shaky but lots of fun.
