If the matter is allowed to proceed to court and or the Magistrates decide to convict is a different matter, but the plus or minus 10% etc are not LAW.
I donâ€™t see how this can be the case. Car speedometers can indicate + or â€“ 10% of actual speed. If youâ€™re in a 40 mph area and your Speedo is + or - 9% (i.e. within allowable tolerances), then if you think youâ€™re being a good boy and driving at 38 mph, you could be travelling at nearly 41.5 mph.
You did not read my posting correctly,
I must learn to read and understand the difference between charge and convict. D-oh, sorry.
