Driver Avoids 6 Penalty Points for Failing to Provide Information
Barrister Helen Newbold represented this driver in the Magistrates’ Court where he was facing 9 penalty points for a speeding offence and for failing to provide information about the driver.
This driver was doubled manned in a company vehicle when the vehicle was caught speeding on an ANPR camera. As the key holder for the vehicle the driver should have provided information which would have led to the identification of the driver. However a returned blank form ensured both the driver and the second occupant in the van were facing offences of speeding and failing to provide information.
After speaking to the prosecutor and giving her client clear advice Helen Newbold was able to ensure that the prosecution offered no evidence to the court for the failing to provide and the driver walked away with 3 penalty points and a small fine for the speeding offence.
