Speeding Aberdeen

Kept Licence
Aberdeen Sheriff Court and Justice of the Peace Court

Laurencekirk is the part of the A90 where the limit drops from 70mph to 50mph for a short period and this speed camera has caught out thousands of motorists over the years.

We identified a number of loopholes and challenged the photographic evidence in the case. Our client - who was facing a totting-up ban - was found not guilty of speeding in Aberdeen due to the technicalities that we identified in the prosecution's case. This case demonstrates the difference that a genuine road traffic expert can make in a case where so much depends on a positive outcome. The speed camera at Laurencekirk still catches out hundreds of drivers each year and the road traffic lawyer still successfully defends the licences of motorists accused of speeding in Aberdeen and its surrounding areas.
