A few months ago, I became a victim of a roadside radar speed trap. Having spent a large part of my working life driving for a living, I can't deny that it wasn't the first time this had happened. It was, however, the first time I had been offered an opportunity to avoid receiving the dreaded three penalty points on my driving license. However, in order to do this I was obliged to attend a Driver Awareness Course.
Interestingly, as someone who had spent a good deal of time attempting to become familiar with road safety matters whilst training to become a driving instructor in the sixties, although somewhat embarrassed to have 'let the side down' (in a manner of speaking), I looked upon it as a refresher course and was very much looking forward to it. At the end of the day, I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed the experience; not least, because it was a gloriously sunny day and I enjoyed a pleasant round trip to and from Winchester on Trixie (who I introduced to one of the instructors).
By the way, it isn't just open to those who have fallen foul of the law; so, I would thoroughly recommend it. Here's the URL - http://www.saferroadspartnership.co.uk/what-we-do/driver-awareness.html
