Basically what happened was that, I was travelling on the A2 of 50 mile limit and I was within the limit but for one reason or the other I was in a situation whereby I almost collided with the truck in from of me and if I break suddenly the car behind might crash into my car. I overtook the truck in front quickly by going into the middle lane and when I looked at my rear mirror the truck was too close and flashed me again. I applied more gas and pushed forward abit then I slow down, five seconds later the police stopped me and said I only slow down because I saw the the speed camera and I explained what happened. I just received a letter that I have been summoned to court of 5th Aug. which state that I was track for 100metres before I was stopped.
Although, it's police in car video device was used to measure the speed. Could you give advice on mitigation letter and to plead guilty without getting a ban. I had 9 points before which I have only just got 3 points off recently.
No, 3 points just came off and I was left with 6 points. Is there anyway you can help with good mitigation letter? Which I can expand on.
I would explain the situation that lead to me being stop for speeding and I will add the following;
Since I haven't got enough evidence and the police did not see the incidence as I explained. I would like the court to know that I was aware that the police car was behind two cars away and it will be stupid of me to speed in 50 miles limit. I am asking the court to consider what could have happened if I didn't act quickly enough to avoid crashing into the truck in front. I would like to ask the court not to ban me because I rely heavily on driving to work and there is no other mains. I would also like the court to consider my 4 children, I have to drop them at school and nursery and as well as taking them to different activities during the week. I accept I have to pay more attention on the road. .. something like that. Please kindly review..
I was at 48 to 50 miles limit, when the incidence happened and after I overtook the truck in front and when the police stopped me I was told 93 but the summon letter states 75 miles. Though, I have a doubt I couldn't have been in that speed in the short space of time.
If I plead guilty and not raise any form of defence in the mitigation and then mitigate just on hardship it will cause me and my family if banned. Do you think the I get a lesser point rather than ban.
It also state in the summon letter that if plead guilty I will pay the cost of £85, is it the only cost I will pay or could it include other cost?
Are suggesting that I plead guilty and write mitigation letter and attend the court to prove the hardship it might cause.
Ok, Thank you If I have any more questions I shall let you know..
