Speeding fines / points

Do any Boatmaders out there know any legit ways to get around speeding offences i.e. cameras just that I am getting perilously close to taking an enforced holiday!

The loop hole with fixed speed camera is...
Due to the law being the way it is you can only be done if you admit to the offence. When they send you the doc's in the post for the speeding offence simply dont reply. They can take no further action until you have signed and returned the documentation. So bin it and in 6-12 weeks you will get a letter explaining to you that the police will not be taking the matter any further. My brother has done this after being advised by a copper friend of mine.
He also told me how to get away with drink driving IF you are not visibly pissed! All you need do it insist you have had no more then 1/2pint and if you fail there is no way that they can tell how many units of alcohol you have had to produce the level of alcohol in your breath/blood. When the case goes to court they will not be able to proove that you had more than 1 unit of alcohol before you got behind the wheel and thus you will be found not guilty. They science is... everyone is different, Captain Chaos could have one pint a lager and give a reading of 70ml of alcohol to 100ml of breath and Gav could have 5 pints and give the same reading. All depends on how fast you soak it up! So there is no scientific way of knowing how many units of alcohol someone has consumed.
Another, MORE RISKY way is to keep a small bottle of whisky in your door. When you get pulled take it out of the car with you, shut the door and drink it in full veiw of the onboard camera. When they ask " have you had anything to drink Sir?" you reply "yes I have just necked a bottle of whisky when I got out of the car" if they say they believe you were drunk before you necked the whisky simple say "you prove I was pissed before I got out of my car!"
Simply does it!

Hmmm trouble is I didn’t actually receive the initial letter, was lost in the post. (The whole truth Milord)
I only found out today when I received a REMINDER saying that if I did not reply ‘consideration will be given to instigating proceedings against you for failing to supply the required information contrary to Section 172 Road traffic Act 1988”

Why do I have a strange feeling that my thread will turn into Chauldron / Phantom thing again?
