    If you're one of the many drivers who believe that the 50 mph speed sign in the lead up to Kingstone roundabout from Falmer doesn't apply to you and thus go hurtling by on the inside lane then I hope they throw the book at you.

      Do you think I'm likely to be banned?
      Not unless you have 9 points already.

      Even then, it’s not a certainty - more than 10,000 drivers are currently permitted to drive on 12 or more points, claiming Exceptional Hardship e.g. they say they’d lose their job or livelihood.

      Ridiculous speed limit that everyone just ignores anyway

      They should get a permanent speed camera there to be fair.

      But most speed limits are ridiculous when you're as good at driving as what we are

      I was waiting for the OP to mention that stretch of road. I know a couple of folks done for speeding there.
      If you choose not to decide you still have made a choice......

      To be fair (and I say this as one who does observe the speed limit there), that limit seems unnecessary.

      I know where you’re coming from, the 50mph starts incredibly far from the Ashcombe/Kingston roundabout.

      But ignoring it leads to tickets ... in the last year the speed trap van visits that spot frequently, giving easy pickings on hundreds of drivers.

      So does coming down the a23 when to splits to 4 lanes for the a27 roundabout. That's 50mph for must be 1/2 a mile too. No mobile site there but I have seen traffic police doing checks there in the past.
      I feel sorry for people who don't drink because when they wake up, that's the best they are going to feel all day.
