    I wonder if they would go to the trouble of cross referencing your vehicle to your passport and channel crossing.
    If they did, they could get you later
    Whilst I agree that such info should be available for a crime.

    It strikes me that Data protection laws should prohibit such X referencing But ????

    Oh really. So not as in the UK then? Where your ticket shows your actual speed, not speed minus allowance.

    Now I understand why I have just paid a speeding ticket alleging 1km over the limit.
    The actual speed limit was 80 km, It seems I was clocked at 86 km and so the speed used for the offence was 81 km.
    That makes me feel SO much better, now I understand.
    I think the wonderful French are making the most of their connections with DVLA, fearing possibly that if we leave with no treaty they will loose the right to seek contact details.
    Not wanting any problems when we go over in September, we decided to cough up straight away, and avoid possibly being placed on a database of rogue vehicles.

    Whilst its all a pain in the arse, just cough up and save yourself a lot of potential hassle and think about how many times you have got away with speeding. Try harder next time. ( not getting caught that is )

    Dagnabbit Colin I was trying to portray myself as this innocent elderly gent unfairly targeted by an uncaring bureaucratic regime for just being over the limit
