Hello Ive been summoned to Court for speeding from last September. The

Customer Question

Hello I've been summoned to Court for speeding from last September.
The hearing date is for the 1st April.

I was doing 51 in a 30, I had just come through the 30 speed sign when I realised my speed.

I already have 3 points from 2011.

I'm so worried I'm going to loose my licence, I'm a single mum who works I need my car
To get my daughter school, and my other daughter to the childminders.

I will plead guilty willingly as I know I'm inn the wrong and will pay whatever I have to.

Can you advice my at all if you think I will loose my licence? Do you think I should get representation? And will it be in my benefit to attend caught with my guilty plea?

Regards
Emma

Hi
I have converted this to Q and A for ease of response.

Can you respond OK?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It really isn't no I have three different areas I would need to go too in order to finally get to work
Expert:  Jo C. replied 2 years ago.
OK. Why does that mean you cannot go by public transport?

I know that it will be inconvenient and expensive but thats not the test.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Because I would have to get three different
Buses and be at work for 9
Expert:  Jo C. replied 2 years ago.
OK. Why can you not do that?

Remember the court will not be interested in whether you are inconvenienced.

The court will only be interested in whether it can be done regardless of whether you have to get up at 4am, for example, or not.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 2 years ago.
It might be that the buses don't run at that time but we need to get to the bottom of what is possible and what you would just prefer not to do.
