Fort William Dangerous Driving Charge 5 Points
Our client was charged with dangerous driving by travelling at 75mph in a 40mph limit in poor weather conditions.
Our client's licence was dependent upon him having a driving licence and a Not Guilty plea was instructed.
We reviewed all the evidence in the case and held a meeting with the Procurator Fiscal's Office.
Following some gentle persuasion, the Crown was willing to accept the statutory alternative of careless driving.
The case called at Fort William Sheriff Court on 26th January 2023 where our plea-in-mitigation persuaded the Sheriff to endorse our client's licence with only 5 penalty points. He was also fined £420.
No ban, no extended driving test. Job done.
