Place: Chorley Magistrates Court, PR7
Offence: Totting Up
Defence: Exceptional Hardship
Carl Millar represented Mr I before Chorley Magistrates Court on 7th January 2019. Mr I had accumulated 12 penalty points under the totting up provisions and he therefore faced a minimum period of disqualification of six months. Carl was able to persuade the Court that there would be exceptional hardship to Mr I in that a driving disqualification would mean that he would not be able to continue in his job and, in turn, the loss of income would result in him having difficulties paying his mortgage. The Court were also impressed by the fact that Mr I did lots of work for charitable organisations and he would not be able to continue with this work in the event of a driving disqualification.
