I have received a notice of prosecution because I was caught by a manned vehicle doing 98

This answer was rated:

I have received a notice of prosecution because I was caught by a manned vehicle doing 98 mph in a 70 mph zone. I have 2 endorsements on my licence: a TS50 (date of offence 01/08/12) and SP30 (date of offence 31/01/15). There are some mitigating facts because 5 years ago I adopted a little girl from an orphanage in China and she is now 7. I am a single parent and her life would be seriously impacted were I to lose my licence, particularly because in September we moved to a new area so that she could attend a more suitable school, and I have no support systems in place for getting her to school and to the various activities that she attends. What are the chances of me being banned from driving? How long is a ban likely to be? In the event that the court does not impose a ban how many points will I get on my licence? Many thanks for your advice.

Hi Alex

In anticipation of our phone call I thought I would answer your questions. Yes, I accept the offence because I was driving down to Devon on the A303 on the date and time in question (last Sunday). The A303 is a notoriously busy and difficult road of about 100 miles in length. It is the only route down to the part of the West Country that I was going to and it combines long stretches of single carriageway with heavy queuing traffic, with some parts of dual carriageway where a lot of people 'put their foot down' on the accelerator. I believe the offence took place when I was in the fast lane of a dual carriageway and another driver came up right behind me going faster than me and I felt pressurised to go quicker than necessary in order to find a gap in the traffic in the nearside lane so that I could let the driver behind go past. I always drive in the nearside lane if possible and only go into the fast lane to overtake slow traffic. Thanks - Caroline
