    Speeding fines are the worst...I did 31mph in a 30mph and was hit with a £450 fine!

    You can change settings, but I now have a dash which shows both MPH and KPH so I am happy

    yeah that will happen. Driving on the wrong side of the road, no lights, you will get fined for a massive amount!

    I take it for those you are fined regardless? As in if i drive with no lights down the wrong way, will I be fined or does there have to be a camera/police see me doing it?

    Cameras/police need to see it, but sometimes you dont see either and get it.

    I was on a country road going from portsmouth to london, no cameras, no police I could see, hit with a speeding fine, no lights and wrong way (I had been driving in Europe all day).

    Also, not resting fines are automatic, and they accumulate so be careful, because if you dont rest, for every 10 mins it hits you, as they put a rest stop roughly every 8-9 mins of driving.

    I am running the Scania R420, but have an Economy Engine which adds 8% fuel efficiency, and specc'd my truck so that its overall weight is lighter which means more pulling power for bigger loads.

    I also have the Volvo FH16 750 which is a beast, as I have hit nearly 100mph with it with the speed restriction off mod!
