Speeding Totter Avoids 6 Month Ban with Short Disqualification

Millicent Dooher, barrister, represented this car driver following a speeding offence, where the driver was recorded as travelling at 86-mph in a 50-mph restricted zone. This could carry a sentence of up to 56 days driving disqualification, or 6 penalty points. This driver already had 6 penalty points endorsed upon his licence and 6 further points would result in him being a ‘totter’, facing a 6-month driving ban.

Evidence was presented to the Magistrates on the offence and personal mitigating circumstances. Millicent was able to persuade the Magistrates to deal with this driver by way of a short disqualification of 21 days after which he would have a clean licence.
