Speed Based Dangerous Driving Paisley Sheriff Court Not Guilty

This case involved an allegation that our client drove at speeds in excess of twice the 40mph speed limit at Linwood Road in Paisley. The Crown prosecuted our client under the dangerous driving provisions due to the high level of speed measured by the Police, i.e. in excess of 80mph. The Crown accepted the speed detection in this case was flawed and reduced the charge to one of careless driving at 65mph. This significantly downgraded the charge and our client received a moderate penalty point endorsement as a result.
