Driving Without Due Care – Driver escapes with only 4 penalty points.
This driver, represented before the Magistrates by barrister Millicent Dooher, was facing up to 9 penalty points or a disqualification following the offence of careless driving (without due care and attention). As this offence occurred within the first 2 years that this driver has held a licence, 6 or more penalty points would have caused his licence to be revoked, requiring a full re-test. Millicent was able to persuade the Magistrates to deal with this by way of 4 penalty points. This driver was therefore able to retain his licence.
