Speed Awareness Course
I am one of thousands who have done a speed course , all of us for trifling excess of around 5 mph . I have to say the information and figures they provide is very good especially in regard of the effects that different speeds have on hitting people , and on stopping distances . It is all an eyeopener and worth knowing .
What is also an eyeopener is the amount of money each classroom of say 40 offenders generates at around £80 per head ,thats £3200 . Minus the cost of the room , a days wages for a couple of driving instructors , the minuscule cost of office work for sending out the offence notice and the uncharacteristically free tea and bikkies , and I am sure there is still a large sum left over for HMG .The official line is that it is intended to educate , not punish —but of course it manages to do both
Holiday Inn ,Newport.
Two weeks after attending course I received a £100 parking fine.
This was rescinded on this one occasion.
On the day I had followed instructions for registering my car in the hotel carpark. I thought no more of it. However the inference is that I made a mistake.
Please TTC provide parking proof or else use another venue.
