114mph Dangerous Driving Licence Saved

Kept Licence
Hamilton Sheriff and Justice of the Peace Court

Our client was accused of driving at 114mph on the M8. He denied travelling at such a high speed and instructed the Firm to defend his case. He was charged with dangerous driving and the matter proceeded to trial at Hamilton Sheriff Court on 29th September 2021, with our Mr Simpson in attendance.

We spent many months analysing the evidence and, following a few failed attempts at resolving the case, on the morning of the trial an accord was struck.

Our client pleaded guilty to driving without due care and attention or without reasonable consideration for other persons using the road by travelling at 108mph in a 70mph limit (careless driving).

Mr Simpson delivered a plea in mitigation which secured the retention of his driving entitlement. His licence was endorsed with 9 penalty points and he was fined £750.

 Kept Licence!
