Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
so you mean you were driving at over 100mph in 70 limit?
and whats the time scale?
you mentioned 'both times'?
Ticket 1 can't be before the court now? They are out of time.
Oh I see.
What was the limit and what was the speed this time?
Thanks for the information.
If this is a 108 mph in a 70 mph zone then it does fall just under the highest guideline allowing them to impose either 4-6 points or a ban of between 7-28 days.
The risk here is 6 points as that would render you liable to totting.
To avoid or reduce the risk of 6 point you would normally refer to the shortness of any distance driven at speed, the clarity of vision, the absence of heavy traffic, the clemency of weather and the absence of vulnerable road users.
A short ban would be unlucky but, in fairness, a short ban can be better than points sometimes because points remain on licences for very much longer although bans do have a horrendous impact upon insurance.
Can I clarify anything for you?
No problem and all the best.
