A man has spent 30,000 fighting a speed ticket. He did this despite his comment that he was "pretty certain", as opposed to "certain", that he was innocent.

The fine dates back to a Christmas shopping trip in 2016 when, according to the courts, he was caught driving at 36mph in a 30mph zone.

Worcester man, 71-year-old Richard Keedwell, then acted on information from a friend of a friend - an RAF man who had experience with radar cameras in the 1960s. After seeing the photo evidence, he told Mr. Keedwell that a double doppler effect may have happened where a radar beam bounces off one object onto another.

That was all the aggrieved man needed to spring into action. He wasn't going to roll over on the 100 fine.

He said: "There was a Volkswagen Golf in the middle lane of New Road while I was on the right. If some of the beam bounces off that car onto mine, it causes a distorted camera reading."

After four visits to Worcester Magistrates' Court and a subsequent appeal, he lost. The judge asked: "Why is my time being wasted with this?"

In what I believe to contain a certain level of understatement, Mr. Keedwell said: "My wife has a degree of frustration."

His 37 and 42 year old children still live at home as they can't afford their own houses - his eldest asked him: "Why do you bloody bother?"

Does this thread not deserve a title Rob?

I did see this yesterday and I tried to add a title to save Rob's blushes, but I got the message "The html tags you attempted to use are not allowed". The post has html in it for position of the image and non-staff are not allowed to post html tags.

Aha, I know what the problem was - the symbol that I used in the title. The forum post accepted the title without the , but the front page wasn't playing ball at all Confused

Thanks for the heads up, now fixed!
