They said I was speeding at 46. I was travelling on a stretch of road that I am unfamiliar with, I've since found out that it's notorious for having its speed limit chop and change and people are always getting caught on it. I entered the road when the speed limit was 50 mph. They claim it was on a stretch set at 30.
I am being prosecuted for both. I accept that I must have been speeding. It's the other offence that I'm more worried about. I don't want to go to court, but if I plead guilty how will it affect my life and career?
That makes me feel a lot better. I should have mentioned that I live in Scotland - Scots Law is different but would you imagine things to be quite similar here?
Phew! I think I am just blowing things out of proportion in my head and imagining myself being disqualified from driving and losing my job. I called a local solicitor and he said that I shouldn't plead guilty because in his eyes I am not guilty. However, I don't want to go to court and in my mind the easiest thing would be to plead guilty. The other thing that Ikeep thinking about it if someone googles my name - will the court case show up? I'd be horrified if it did.
That's good news then.
