    Now those are some very interesting facts!

    It makes sense that BMW's and Porsche's are flashed more than any other car, as they're normally owned by business men who spend all day travelling around.

    I hope they got nice expensive fines to go with their expensive cars

    That doesn't suprise me about the Impreza's either... most are owned by absolute nutters

    Ohhhhhhh, that's nasty!

    Seems the Rover 25 doesn't get pulled a lot either... probably because they're all driven by old people who are law abiding 'lets sit 5mph below the speed limit' drivers.

    I was behind a 420 GSi this evening doing 33 in a 40... but I daren't overtake them. I'm sure you remember what happened last time I overtook someone

    I have a TomTom navigator which thanksfully tells me where all the speed cameras in the country are.

    If I didn't have this kit, I'd be taking the bus to work tomorrow
