Hello again. Thanks for your help. Do you have a view on what the punishment is likely to be? I have an otherwise clean license and there are mitigating circumstances such as the very recent change of the speed limit from 50 to 30, not is a residential area but speed limit reduced ina dvance of a future development (just started) ,daughter wating at the train station alone in the dark, perfect conditions driving conditions, no children/scholls nearby etc, etc.I am of a mind to go to trial with Barrister representation if a ban looks likely so would value you opinion.
My speed was 57 in a 30 limit.
I believe so. the road was previously the perimeter of the town of Bicester with residential houses to tjhe left and fields to the right. The speed limit has very recently been reduced due to residential development on the right that has just begun.
I am travelling road in the next hour or so so can check the lighting.
Thank you. Do you think it is worth being represented and working on the mitigation or is it a fairly fixed penalty? Do I have to attend or is a guilty plea with written mitigation allowed?
Many thanks for your help. Will probably just do a letter of mitigation and leave it at that.
That's all for now and thanks again.
