Speeding

Experienced, Trusted, Cost-effective Legal Advice

Minor speeding offences attract a fixed penalty notice, usually 3 points and £100 fine. In some cases, a speed aware course is offered. The person charged with the speeding offence can choose to defend the speeding offence in court.

Serious speeding offence is normally one where the driver is 20mph or more over the speed limit. This type offence leads to court summons and prosecution. In such cases the police is required to bring proceedings to court within 6 months, however a delay does not mean that you have escaped prosecution. The sentencing for these types of offences ranges from;

a. 3-6 points

b. Discretionary disqualification of between 7-56 days and or

c. Up to £1000 fine (£2500 for speeding on Motorway)

Where a driver is 30mph+ over the speed limit this is regarded as a very serious speeding offence, the result is often a driving ban and where the speed is ‘grossly in excess’ a custodial sentence may be imposed.

One can defend a speeding allegation by proving that they were not driving the vehicle at the time of the alleged offence or that the evidence put forward by the prosecution is unreliable evidence such as the camera or hand held gun was not being used in accordance with the codes of practice. Also, one cannot be convicted on the opinion of a police officer, the police officer must use an approved detection device to validate their opinion of the driver speeding.
