I have a speeding ticket, for going 62mph in 50mph but it’s

Customer Question

Hi I have a speeding ticket, for going 62mph in 50mph but it’s because my battery terminal cut out and had no hard shoulder to fall on due to the new failure of smart motorways, is this something I could fight?
JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what location this is in?
Customer: M4 junction 5, in London
JA: Was a citation issued? Was a court date set?
Customer: no it was a fine offered
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: no

I understand you have been caught speeding and want to know if you can fight it
What you have is migration - not a defence
The law is strict - you were either above the limit or you were not
If you haven’t had a speeding offence for some time they may offer you the speed awareness course
But you have mitigation and not a defence I’m afraid
