Place: Lincoln Magistrates Court

Offence: Speeding / Totting Up 12 penalty points on driving licence

Defence: Exceptional Hardship

Carl Millar represented Miss B before Lincoln Magistrates Court on 19th February 2019.  She had accumulated 12 penalty points on her driving licence and she therefore faced a minimum period of disqualification of 6 months.  Carl successfully advanced mitigation to persuade the magistrates to not disqualify Miss B at all.  Amongst the mitigation presented was the fact that Miss B is a social worker.  Carl referred to the case of Cornwall v Coke.  That case specifically mentions the hardship to the public as a mitigating circumstance, and indeed, is rather stronger mitigation than hardship to the offender.

Miss B was delighted with the outcome as she was not disqualified from driving, despite the fact that she now has 12 penalty points on her driving licence.
