Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
hi- I need to understand what the likely outcome will be from the notice of intended prosecution on the alleged offence as I already have 9 points on my licence which wont come off until Dec this year
I don't think so - the police car will I assume have had video . I feel my best defence is to look at the law which I believe says that you can cross a white line under certain circumstances- one being that there is a slow moving vehicle and its safe to do so. There was a slow moving vehicle and I had checked it was safe to pass
it was an oil tanker
No I don't know what speed it was doing . Can you please give me some advise here. Is there a speed that matters where I would have a chance of not getting points? Will I be likely to get points - if so I risk loising my license under the totting up policy? Whats my best line of defence. Should I ask police for video evidence ? If they booked me are they liable to say the spee dof the vehiclke was under or over the threshold level for which it would have been okay for me to cros sthe line etc
I need some advise please
Hi - I don't feel as though I have had any advice yet - only questions from you. I was going around 35mph - road was a 50mph speed limit . I have no idea what speed the oil tanker was going but would guess at circa 20mph but I could not possibly know. What would be useful is knowing what the law is on this point and the relevance of your questions. If the oil tanker was going at a certain speed then would I have been allowed to cross the white line if it was safe to do so. That was my iunderstanding but I don't know at what speed that holds true
thank you okay so it looks like I will not be able to argue a case here . Do you know what the potential fine/penalty will be. As mentioned I have 9 points on my license so my big concern is this will now mean I may get another 3 points and if so would potentially lose my licence under the totting scheme. Is it possible to pay a fine instead or will I most likely get points plus fine?
