Expert:  Jo C. replied 8 months ago.

What speed were you doing please?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
They have not told me I just received the letter.
travelling on the M5 I entered 3 separate police forces whilst speeding. I paid 2 speeding fines for that day and had points added 6. The letter for the 3 offence I did not receive any notice for that offence just a letter of prosecution
Expert:  Jo C. replied 8 months ago.

OK.

But what speed do you think you were doing?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
between 80 90
Expert:  Jo C. replied 7 months ago.

And this was a 70 mph zone? It wasn't a reduced zone?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
It might of been a reduce zone I am not sure as they have not given me any details
Expert:  Jo C. replied 7 months ago.

I'm really sorry but unless you can tell me what the speed limit was an what speed you were doing roughly I am not going to be able to tell you what sentence you will get.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Limit 50
Expert:  Jo C. replied 7 months ago.

Ok. How long have you been driving?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
42yrs and have never had a speeding fine
Expert:  Jo C. replied 7 months ago.

Thanks.

If this is a 50 mph zone and you were doing between 80-90 then you are at risk of a ban I'm afraid.

That is over the highest bracket of speeding. They would commonly charge that as dangerous driving rather than speeding. If they have not then plead guilty quickly and take advantage of your position.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 7 months ago.

I'm afraid a ban is likely though. The highest bracket concludes at 85 mph and that recommends a ban.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 7 months ago.

You don't need a solicitor but it would be helpful.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 7 months ago.

But it would rack up the cost and you would have to consider that.

Can I clarify anything for you?
