Dangerous Driving Oban 119mph Kept Licence

Kept Licence
Oban Sheriff Court and Justice of the Peace Court

Our client was accused of dangerous driving by speeding at 119mph in a 60mph limit. 

This is the sort of speed that is dangerous and carries a risk of a custodial sentence.

Our client could not afford to lose his licence and elected to defend the case. 

Following a series of meetings with the Procurator Fiscal's Office, we were able to persuade the Crown to accept a speed of 105mph as careless driving

Our client was sentenced on 4th October 2023 and received 9 penalty points. 

He kept his licence.

 Kept Licence!
