To say that I'm annoyed is an understatement - 3.7 mph over is ridiculous! I won't ever be travelling to France ever again!

I've paid up!! well before the deadline! just gets it off my mind! I was waiting to see if I got anymore, as I was diverted around London on the journey to Holland and hadn't a clue where I was going. Low emission zones and the lot!!!

They will soon have us down to the old bloke walking in front of us with a red flag, and no night driving. Hope I pop my clogs before that comes in.
