Brilliant Legal Representation

“I was recently represented by Kang & Co Solicitors for a drink driving charge. From the initial telephone call it was clear that Kang & Co were experts in this field. They provided sound advice and diligently guided me through the process leading up to the court case. Through their legal representation I was able to avoid a community order and receive the best possible outcome for my case .”

Flawless Legal Help

“They had very little time to go ahead with getting all valid documents needed for my case, they were extremely efficient and great at calming me and keeping me updated with my case and it’s details with interviews and courtrooms to appear in, overall great experience with kang and co, I came out with a 2 year suspended sentence instead of a 1 year custodial sentence for GBH without intent. I now get to spend the time caring for my nan and helping with my family’s needs.”

Driving at 36 mph in a 30 mph Zone – Understanding the Ramifications

by | Jan 12, 2024 | Articles, Driving Offence Advice

Have you recently found yourself in a situation where you’ve been caught driving at 36 mph in a 30 mph zone? You’re not alone. Many drivers unintentionally exceed speed limits, but the consequences can have different levels of severity. Understanding the legal implications, potential penalties, and the possibility of contesting penalty points is crucial in such scenarios.

Understanding the Ramifications of Driving at 36 mph in a 30 mph Zone

Sentencing Guidelines and Legal Framework

Under the Road Traffic Act 1988, exceeding the speed limit is considered a motoring offence. Driving at 36 mph in a 30 mph zone exceeds the legal speed limit by six miles per hour. According to the sentencing guidelines for speeding offences, this level of infringement typically falls within the Band A range.

The Sentencing Guidelines for speeding offences categorize Band A as follows:

  • Speeding between 31 and 40 mph in a 30 mph zone constitutes three penalty points on your driving license.
  • In addition to penalty points, a fine amounting to a proportion of your weekly income will also be imposed. More severe speeding offences can attract larger fines.

What are the Impacts of Penalty Points and Fines?

Accumulating penalty points on your license can lead to further consequences. For instance, accumulating 12 or more points within three years can result in a driving disqualification under the ‘totting up‘ procedure.

Fines for speeding offences vary based on the severity of the offence and your income. The maximum fine for speeding in a 30 mph zone is £1,000, or up to £2,500 if the offence occurred on a motorway.


Contesting Penalty Points

Contesting penalty points for a speeding offence involves demonstrating reasonable grounds for challenging the charge. This can include disputing the accuracy of speed measurement devices, proving mitigating circumstances, or demonstrating that the alleged offence did not occur.

Our experienced driving offence legal team can assess your case thoroughly to determine whether contesting the penalty points is a viable option. We can provide guidance on the strength of your case and represent you in court if challenging the penalty points is deemed feasible.


Seeking Out Legal Representation

When facing a motoring offence charge, seeking legal advice and representation is paramount. Our team of dedicated driving offence solicitors specializes in navigating the complexities of such cases. We understand the nuances of the Road Traffic Act and can offer expert guidance tailored to your circumstances.

Our legal team possess in-depth knowledge of the legal framework surrounding speeding offences. We provide strategic advice and representation in court, aiming to minimize the impact on your driving privileges and finances. You don’t need to face the legal system alone, our legal team is here to support you throughout the process.

Do I Need Legal Advice for driving at 36 mph in a 30 mph zone?

If you’ve been caught driving at 36 mph in a 30 mph zone or are facing any other motoring offence and want to explore contesting penalty points, don’t hesitate to contact our legal team. We recommend only seeking legal action (because of cost implications) if you are facing a potential driving ban through a totting up of penalty points. If you have just 3 or 6 points on your licence you will not require legal support, instead just drive extra carefully so that you don’t reach a totting up of penalty points (which incurs an automatic driving ban).

Call us today at 0345 222 9955 to speak with one of our driving offence legal team members. Let us help you navigate the legal complexities and work towards the best possible outcome for your case.

Remember, when it comes to motoring offences, seeking timely legal advice can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case. If you are facing a driving ban, don’t delay—reach out to our team and let us guide you through this challenging situation.
