Bit of a double whammy isn't it.

You do your best for the country by driving at uneconomical speeds so's the Government get more tax out of you and then they penalise you by fining you as well!

Life's a *****!

But officer, I admit I was cruising in the middle lane, but that lorry overtook me on the inside!!!.

I hope the Vauxhall behind you got booked too.
I wonder if the fact you were on a left curve meant the beam from the speed gun was distorted by the size of the truck. Not ridiculous: there was a famous case many years ago where a guy caught for speeding in Newport, Gwent proved that ray-scatter in the vicinity of his vehicle corrupted the reading of the speed meter sufficiently for there to be an element of doubt and thereby a not-guilty finding at court. The police fought that one tooth and nail- but lost!
IUTLS.
