Oban Dangerous Driving 110mph in 60mph Limit 5 points
Our client was accused of travelling at 110mph in a 60mph limit. The police reported him for dangerous driving contrary to section 2 of the Road Traffic Act 1988. He contacted our office understandably worried about the consequences that would follow a conviction for dangerous driving.
We discussed the case with our client and then the Procurator Fiscal. Having discussed matters sensibly it was agreed that our client would plead guilty to a charge of speeding at 100mph in a 60mph limit. The reason for the speed reduction was that the particular method of speed detection deployed in this case was not the most accurate and prone to error.
Our client's licence was endorsed with 5 penalty points and he was fined the sum of £750.
In all the circumstances of the case, this was a very good and ultimately fair result.
This case was dealt with by our Mr Simpson at Oban Sheriff Court on 20th July 2018 (the plea having been negotiated by Mr Lyon).
