Speeding Case Studies

Motoring Offences

Our client pleaded guilty to speeding, he was travelling at 107 mph in a 70 mph speed limit. The Sentencing Guidelines suggest that the court should consider disqualifying a driver for between 7 and 56 days for this speed. However we were able to successfully persuade the court not to impose a disqualification from driving.


Our client had signed and returned a notice of intended prosecution accepting that she was the driver of the vehicle at the relevant time when it was travelling at almost double the speed limit. She was prosecuted and summoned to attend court. She later realised that she was not driving at the time and in fact it was her son who was speeding. We were able to successfully persuade the court that she was not the driver and she was found not guilty of speeding.
