Customer Question

I was speeding 53 in a 30 and was caught on camera. I have to go to court. I am not a habitual speeding offender and do not have points on my license. I had recently moved house and was looking for a way to work. I was not using sat nav as my phone was old (I have bought a better one now). I ended up on a road I was not familiar with. It was accidental.
JA: Where are you? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: Herefordshire
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: I have completed all the forms sent to me explaining that I am the sole wage earner and I live in a rural place. There are no busses or trains and I would loose my job. I have since got a new job closer to home but I am 65 and would loose my job it I lost my license. My husband does not claim benefits and does not like to drive.
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: I cannot think of anything

Thank you for your patience. If this was your first time I am surprised you were not offered speed awareness. The excess is really high that to argue that you did not know the area would not be a very strong argument. With your personal circumstances I strongly recommend that you engage a solicitor to assist you especially at the sentencing stage because a ban is quite probable. they will have to argue the exceptional hardship you will suffer if you are banned from driving.
