Inverness Mobile Phone Case Deserted After Long Battle

Kept Licence
Inverness Sheriff Court and Justice of the Peace Court

Our client was accused of careless driving by looking at the time on his mobile telephone. The charge seemed ill-founded from the outset. 

Glancing at a handheld device is, in principle, no different to glancing at a wristwatch. 

Our client quite properly instructed a plea of Not Guilty to be tendered to the Court.

The case lasted for many months. Shortly before the trial called we were able to discuss the merits of the case with a sensible prosecutor. 

The case was pulled from the system and the charge was dropped. 

No points and no fine.

Job done.

 Kept Licence!
