I have searched the internet to look at similar offences and it seems as though 6 points and a fine is the average for this offence although there is a driving ban in some cases. Bearing in mind as I said that I have a clean licence, it was a clear day and the road in front of me was clear as I was overtaking traffic before I got to a roundabout. The road distance between the end of the 50mph zone which I had stuck to and where the police were with a hand held device was about 7/10 of a mile so I was up to that speed in that distance and then braking for a roundabout.
What is your view on the above please?
that is correct.
I was going to say in court as I assume this is a summons offence and could not be dealt with by post, that I didn't think I was over 100mph initially before stating the other information regarding clean licence, road conditions and the fact that it was only for a short time.
In your opinion taking all of the information supplied into account and from results of this kind of speed which way do you think this would go?
Solicitors fees seem to be very high so I was going to support myself as it seems a reasonably straight forward case?
just want to get a feeling from yourself as I said using your experience of this type of offence of which way you think it could go please.
ie points and a fine or a ban?
