Motorway Speeding: Ban Avoided
Our Case Study
Nature of the Offence
Mr Fuller was caught speeding on the M1 Motorway and subsequently received a Court Summons to attend the Magistrates’ Court, as there was a very high risk of him receiving a driving ban for this motoring offence.
His sports car was caught travelling at 110mph in a 70mph zone on the motorway, an offence which usually attracts a driving ban, due to the very high speed.
Where the Offence Occurred
The offence occurred on the M1 motorway, near Nottingham, and his case was listed before Nottingham Magistrates’ Court.
Our lawyers advised and represented Mr Fuller, he accepted that he had been speeding and pleaded guilty at Court. We advanced compelling and persuasive mitigation on his behalf, highlighting mitigating factors specific to the offence and the repercussion a ban would have upon him.
The Magistrates’ carefully considered the mitigation we had put forward on his behalf and decided to endorse his driving licence with 6 penalty points, as opposed to a driving ban.
Mr Fuller was delighted that we had been able to persuade the Court not to impose a driving ban upon him for this offence.
