Speeding Charge Aberdeen Dropped

Kept Licence
Aberdeen Sheriff Court and Justice of the Peace Court

Our client was accused of speeding at 32mph in a 20mph limit. 

He was already on 9 penalty points and required to vigorously defend this charge or face losing his licence for 6 months under the totting-up rules.

Our Mr Simpson appeared at Aberdeen JP Court on 31st March 2022 and managed ultimately to persuade the Crown to discontinue the case.

There were a number of technical lines of defence that would have secured an acquittal had the case gone all the way.

Our client drove away from Court a happy man.

 Kept Licence!
