Hello Andy

But what was the speedo showing?

The speedo will overread by say 10% so a speed of 35mph as measured by the equipment that caught her would mean a speed showing on the speedo of closer to 40mph. Unless you have an accurate speedo that is.

You get 5mph latitude in a 30 zone. I do not know if it a percentage

We thought that too.
I think the ACPO guidelines recommend enforcement at 10% + 2mph, my wife
got a fixed penalty notice for doing 35 in a 30 zone.
