Saturday Court Success
In order to clear the backlog of Magistrates’ Courts work, there are now motoring Courts running most Saturdays at a number of locations to deal with drivers who face prosecution for motoring offences.
We have represented drivers each weekend for a number of months. Most recently, our barrister attended at York Magistrates’ Court to represent a driver who already had 9 points on his licence and was facing a further 3 points and a totting up disqualification. We liaised with the Court for an exceptional hardship hearing and prepared evidence from the driver’s employer and family. The Court agreed with our submission that a lengthy disqualification would cause exceptional hardship for the driver and his family. The points were imposed but he avoided any period of disqualification.
