Is this just a con
Expert:  Jo C. replied 9 months ago.

What?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
You asked if I had a clean driving licence and I responded "yes". Then I heard nothing.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 9 months ago.

Sorry but I'm not sure what you mean?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Sorry what would you like to know?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 9 months ago.

I'm not sure what you wanted to know?

Are you asking what sentence you will receive?

If so, what was the road layout?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
That's correct, what sentence is likely. It was a 60mph road dropping to a 30mph limit
Expert:  Jo C. replied 9 months ago.

Is this a country road?

Was it a built up area?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
It was a country road with a few houses on one side
Expert:  Jo C. replied 9 months ago.

There is no particular aggravation in that then. But it is a very high speed proportionate to the limit.

It is at the higher end of the highest sentencing bracket. That would mean the guidelines say either 6 points or a ban of between 7 – 56 days. Given that you are the higher end of the bracket there is a risk of a short ban.

It depends what other mitigation you can raise. At least it was not a particularly built up area and I suppose the distance driven at speed was fairly short.

There will also be a fine proportionate to your income, costs of £85 and the surcharge of roughly 10% of the fine.

Can I clarify anything for you?
