Thank you for your prompt reply.
What about the fact that the on the report doc the officer handed me, he ticked NO against NIP? Lower on the form under Officers recommendation where it notes that the officer is of the opinion of the need for a diversion course and that the offence committed was as a result of intent. Does that not imply that no summons was expected?
Should I then plead guilty by post and write a mitigating letter? Or should i present myself in court and explain my case?
Thanking you in advance.
Am I correct in understanding that i should not present to court in order to argue the 85mph, unless I am sure that this will be considered by the magistrates?
I would have little belief to be honest that this will change much.
It this case, I believe it is more appropriate to accept the guilty charge and write a mitigating letter. Should I note in the letter anything about my belief of not driving at the speed charged with or should I more or
less show remorse and explain the reason why that had happened?
Thanking you for your advice.
would it benefit me to present myself to court or should i make sure I save court's time and conduct the process in writing? I am thinking of pleading guilty of driving no more than 85mph by post and mitigating letter.
Or what would be your advice in this instance?
I thank you for your time and assistance with this query. I believe there is scope for me to note attendance in court. I will then explain my case and take it from there.
Many thanks again.
Thats good to know.
