I am required to attend Leicester Magistrates' court to deal with this matter.
The north/south error only exists in the "statement of facts" whereas the actual charge states southbound, which is correct. I have been offered the opportunity to plead guilty by post, which I would have done immediately if I had not discovered this inconsistency.
Would it be best, ***** ***** opinion, just to plead guilty and accept the fine and points?
Since this is going to court anyway there will be a chararge of £85, already advised. What other costs might be involved? I am prepared to pay a certain amount, if the outcome is positive, otherwise it will probably be easier/cheaper to pay the fine and the court costs. Obviouasly points and a fine will also reflect upon my insurance premium. What, in your opinion would be the most cost effective route to take?
Obviously this hinges on the mistake in the "statement of facts" having any bearing on the matter.
Your assumption that this is a fixed penalty matter is incorrect.
The claimed speed is over 100 mph.
