Hello, I hope you are well. My name is***** am a solicitor advocate and I will be assisting you with your question today. I am very sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing and I will do my best to help you with this matter.
Can I please ask you to give me some more detailed information regarding this matter so as to allow me to work with you and help resolve your enquiry.What was the speed limit for the road ypu were driving on?
Thank you for that additional information, that will be helpfull in allowing me to advise you today.The reason for notice of prosecution would be because of the speed. You will in due course receive a summons to court.
92mph in a 70 zone moves the offence up from a fixed penalty and 3 points level which covers 71-90 mph to next level up.The next group up is 91-100mph. The penalty for that is a fine and either 4-6 points or a 7-28 day ban. As your speed was just in the lower end then most likely 4 points and a fine.
Yes, it is an honest abs straight forward account. Give that, it would then most likely be deal with by a single justice process on the papers without the need to actually attend court.
When you receive the papers they should ask you to advice whether you accept the offence or not, there is space to write mitigation. That is where youmwould then give your account.
The reasons you give are mitigation, not a defence. So yes accept the matter. If you do not, then it will be a court hearing resulting in a bigger fine and possibly extra point or two.
Your very welcome
