It doesn't bear thinking about. But as cameras become computerised convictions are rising, even amongst otherwise careful drivers who can be caught by a momentary lapse, or intimidated to speed by a tailgater. If you've already picked up a few points for, say, parking in the wrong place, then that first speeding offence could see them pushed past the 'dirty dozen', bringing a fine and, worse, a ban. One flash and you're out. Now Adrian Flux Insurance has developed 'Flashguard', a scheme to subsidise the extra travel costs that come in the wake of a speeding conviction. It is designed to keep drivers mobile and protect their work and family lives. "Disqualification can ruin the lives of otherwise careful drivers in a flash, and that's who we've developed Flashguard for," explains Gerry Bucke of Flux. "It covers the cost of alternative transport, such as taxis and trains, for all the policyholder's needs, from the school run to driving to work to making service calls." In order to qualify for the scheme drivers must have no more than six points current or pending and they must not have been disqualified for any offence during the previous 12 months. Naturally drink and drugs-related convictions are not covered, nor are those directly associated with dangerous or reckless driving convictions. "Flashguard does not condone stupidity or dangerous driving," says Gerry Bucke. "But we can all make mistakes. This policy means that careful drivers who are convicted of speeding can carry on with their lives, albeit more slowly!" The policy pays up to Â£6,000 for alternative transport costs and the premium costs just Â£50 per year. *** Love and hugs from Rich x -- Two cannibals eating a clown.
