Speeding Dumfries A74(M)

Kept Licence
Dumfries Sheriff Court and Justice of the Peace Court

Our client's licence was in jeopardy because of the alleged speed he had been accused of driving at on the A74(M). We examined all of the evidence in the case and found a number of technical issues with the speeding prosecution in Dumfries. Following discussions with senior prosecutors, our client tendered a plea of guilty to a substantially reduced speed and the presiding Sheriff imposed a mere 4 penalty points and a modest financial penalty. Our client was understandably delighted to have received a low level penalty points endorsement for a three figure speed on the A74(M).

If you have been accused of speeding in Dumfries, call the road traffic lawyer for expert legal advice.
