Help for speeding.

Last week I got another speeding fine - not the first!!

I know there are gadgets you can get that warn you when you're speeding or when you're near a speed camera. I don't know anything about these & would like a bit of help please.

Do you use anything to control your speeding & what?

How about the speedometer in your car, Carol?

Not sure about any other gadgets?
I believe it is considered illegal to warn other drivers of cameras.

Aw Carol sorry to hear that.
Are you distracted while driving , it might help to do a silent running commentary to yourself similar to when you are learning to drive.
I do this to stop my mind drifting off to other thoughts away from driving , it includes 'check speed and mirror' at frequent intervals.

I don't drive but I would have thought one of the most important rules was to keep your eye on the speedometer.

Re: Help for speeding.

Most Satnavs show and warn about fixed speed cameras and some will sound a warning if you are exceeding the speed limit. Similar apps are available on smart phones.

Re: Help for speeding.

Don't press down so much with your right foot. It is harder to drive slowly than fast
As for gadgets look up """ ROAD ANGEL """ you will find what your looking for

this is one I used to use, don't know if it still works and lost the holder for it anyway
