Speeding At Fort William Justice of the Peace Court
A charge of speeding at Fort William where the risk to our client’s driving entitlement was twofold. Not only was he accused of driving at 95mph in a 60mph limit, at the time of the offence he also had 6 live penalty points on his driving licence. As a consequence, both discretionary disqualification and a further 6 points invoking a “totting-up” ban were potential outcomes.
Our involvement resulted in the Procurator Fiscal reducing the libelled speed by a significant margin for reasons that need not detain us here. Most importantly, the presiding Justices were then persuaded to dispose of the case by way of 5 penalty points, ensuring that our client kept his licence.
