I got caught doing 36mph, but there’s a first for everything

Have your say

Like a lot of others I too have been caught speeding at Whaplode.

I’m a 72-year-old pensioner and have been a careful driver all my life.

I’d already been through the camera to Spalding and the one coming back, before calling to have my car washed at Whaplode.

There was quite a lot of traffic that day so I had to get out as soon as it was safe to. Unfortunately I put my foot down and forgot, and the camera round the corner got me.

My children are in stitches: You mam, speeding, what are you like?

“Me, I’m gutted but I suppose there’s a first for everything.
