Dangerous Driving Charge Speeding

Kept Licence
Glasgow Sheriff Court and Justice of the Peace Court

Having been accused of driving dangerously by travelling at excessive speed in a residential area our client - whose driving licence was a prerequisite of his employment - was understandably worried. The case proceeded through the usual process: a plea of not guilty was tendered, an intermediate diet assigned at which the case was continued to trial.
