Dangerous Driving Edinburgh - 4 Penalty Points

Kept Licence
Edinburgh Sheriff Court and Justice of the Peace Court

Our client was accused of driving dangerously by racing at speeds in excess of 80mph in a 40mph limit, and failing to stop for police officers in hot pursuit.

Instead, the Crown accepted careless driving and following a plea-in-mitigation, the Sheriff endorsed our client's licence with 4 penalty points and fined him £450.

 Kept Licence!
