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.
Speedos may not display a speed less than than the real speed, but may
over-read up to 10%. My Nissan over-reads by the whole 10%, but some
cars are nearly spot on, so it's unwise to assume that a speedo over-reads.
