no
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.

What was your reason for speeding?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I don't really have one other than I was late for a meeting...
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.

Sure. I wouldnt say you were late for a meeting!

The sentencing range is a fine and either 4-6 points or disqualify for 7-28 days.

Given you have no previous endorsements then you are likely to get points, but probably the higher amount of 6.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Ouch
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.

Yes ouch. The sentencing guidelines are publically available.

Can I help with anything else today?
Alex

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have seen these magistrates guidelines on the net. Based on this I take it that there is no point in appointing a solicitor to help fight
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.

No, I wouldnt. It will only cost you and the sentences are prescribed.

Does that assist?
