Speeding tickets- they're for boy racers and mid-life-crisis males, aren't they? Not for fiftysomething grans in runabout hatchbacks. Or so I always thought, until one day a couple of years ago I noticed a flash as I was pootling home from the supermarket, glanced down and realised the needle was edging closer to the 40mph line than the 30mph one, and got The Letter in the post a few days later.
So now when I think about numbers, the first thing I think about is that all-important 30, and the much larger numbers that the fine and the subsequent increase in my car insurance cost.
And here are the guys responsible for making sure we stick to the speed limit!
I think this would make a great card for a member of the police force, or for somebody who had just passed their driving test, to remind them who could be around the next corner! The image and background come from the La Pashe CD "Something for Everyone", the speed limit and Average Speed Check signs are cut out from another background on the same CD, and the "number plate" was lurking in my stash, left over from an old topper sheet.
