Dangerous Driving Charge Ayr

Kept Licence
Ayr Sheriff Court and Justice of the Peace Court

Our client was accused of travelling in excess of 130mph whilst racing another vehicle, contrary to the Road Traffic Act 1988, Section 2 (as amended) aka dangerous driving. This is the type of speed that can result in a custodial sentence.

This was a truly outstanding result in a very difficult case.

 Kept Licence!
