Alex Watts : Do you have any other points please?
Nothing that I can think of
Alex Watts : Ok. Your defence is what? It was an emergency? It was not you?
I was just on my way to a job and had to accelerate so as not to cause an accident because of where the camera van was parked
Alex Watts : so it was because there was an impending accident, have I understood correct?
Alex Watts : How do you know people were panicking? You can't have known what they were thinking?
yes I was on the inside lane behind a truck which started braking heavily there was a car bumper hugging me so as to not cause an accident I had to accelerate into the outside lane which was where I was snapped
Alex Watts : Ok. Is good and bad news
good news 1st please alex
Alex Watts : The bad news is you have to plead guilty.
Alex Watts : You were speeding.
Alex Watts : The good news is you could try and argue special reasons not to endorse
Alex Watts : That is it does not amount to a defence, it's to do with the offence not the offender and is something the court ought to consider.
how would i go about that?
Alex Watts : You would ideally need a solicior to argue this for you.
Alex Watts : But if accepted the court can give you no points.
Alex Watts : But you have to plead guilty, as you commiteed the offence.
