Offence: Speeding – Totting up 12 penalty points
Defence: Exceptional Hardship
Millars Solicitors represented Mr W before Banbury Magistrates Court on the 29th January 2019. He had accumulated 12 penalty points on his driving licence and he therefore faced a minimum period of disqualification of 6 months. Millars Solicitors successfully advanced mitigation to persuade the Magistrates to disqualify Mr W for the offence of speeding outright, rather than the imposition of penalty points, which would have made Mr W a “totter”. The Magistrates accepted the argument and Mr W received a 3 week driving disqualification instead of receiving a six month driving disqualification under the totting up provisions. Naturally, Mr W was delighted with the outcome.
