    Best time to tell them is when you learn not to put spaces before question marks, exclamation marks, or full stops.

    So glad that it isn't just me. Why are more and more people doing it?

    Tell them immediately, otherwise they may use it as a reason to invalidate your policy.

    Phone them up now, and tell them that you're an unbelievably quick driver, and you see 3 points as merely formal recognition of your uber driving skills.

    I've been caught speeding, once, when I was five.

    Read your policy documentation.

    Some insurers require immediate notification. Others require notification at renewal.

    In Spanish, you place an inverted question mark (¿) and exclamation mark (¡) before a question or exclamation as well as the more traditional but less helpful punctuation approach we follow. An excellent idea in my opinion :)

    I enjoy speeding. It's just as simple as that.

    Our punctuation system makes sense because it's typically only the intonation of the final word, and often final syllable, which marks something out as a question versus a statement.

    Although I guess the exclamation thing makes sense, as there you might expect things to be louder from the off.

    Although there have been studies into how people's eyes move when they're reading, and people dart all over the page, picking up different bits of the sentences at different times, so you probably imperceptibly check the end of a sentence even as you're starting to read it.

    tell them immediatley, if youre pulled again and you havent told them / your involved in a crash then they could cancel your policy there and then.

    Depending on the offence, it shouldn't make much (if any) difference to price anyway.

    Tell your insurance company when you have paid the fine. Thats when its officially logged.

    Thats what the Police told my Mrs when she was done speeding:)
