GPS speedo

Check this out. A GPS speedo, only needs a power supply and should be 100% accurate. Might be a good thing for "specials".

Nice.

In the car I tend to look at my GPS for my speed: it's supposed to be very accurate, (at least on flat ground) and if accurate it means my car speedo shows about 10% lower speed than the GPS; so when GPS shows 70mph; car speedo shows 77mph. Vehicles sticking to the UK maximums are often traveling frustratingly slowly as far as I'm concerned!

Speed limits anywhere are frustratingly slow, GB. I'm lucky with a truck license as I get 1 extra point compared to car drivers, and I need it!! 3 tickets so far this year.
A pity they don't look like a Smiths Chrono.

G'day Bob.
In NSW we get 13 (truck, bus, taxi = 14) points to last 3 years.
For cars & motorcycles
Under 10kph over limit = 1 point & $112
Over 10kph = 3 points & $260
Over 20kph = 4 points & $446
Over 30kph = 5 points & $855
Over 45kph = 6 points & $2306 and instant disqualification for 3 months
Professional drivers get more and there's double points on public holidays and school zones.
Back in the early 80's I run up 56 points in one year (all on a bike) before they collared me. Lost license for 12 months.
Cheers
