M74 Speeding Biggar Found Not Guilty

Lanark Sheriff Court and Justice of the Peace Court

Our client was accused of travelling at 100.2mph on the M74. We advised from the outset that his prospects of success were very good owing to the method of speed detection employed by the police on this occasion.
