Oh Sh.t

97 in a 40 whats the usual penalty,56 day ban? was in country lanes where limits are 40,50,60 but alot of the time on his camera he could not see me so its showing his actual speed not mine. I was just a lot quicker round the corners than him. Can you ask to have a copy of the video as I could not see it correctly from the rear seat. Will it be shown in court if I plead guilty. Im not being done for dangerous driving. Any legal eagles on the forum. Im self employed and need my license as I maintain a fleet of Minibuses.

Get yourself a proper solicitor who specialises in this sort of thing.

Expect to lose your license.

For close to 150% over the limit, make sure you get PROPER advice.

I think you be lucky to get away with a years ban,
If the jails wasnt so full. you would be getting a holiday curtisy of HRM.
and more than likley a huge fine,
You really need good legal advice for sure.

Gutted for you Si,

A few years back I got caught at 137 average speed on a national speed limit

I represented myself and got a £700 fine later reduced to £150 and a three week ban...

So hopefully with a top brief you could be lucky....

I have a mate who did 144 in a 70 on the A19. The judge wanted to give him porridge. Landed a 3 year ban and 300 hours community service.

Expect the worst.

Gutted for you and but for the grace of God go most of us.

A lot depends on what you said and admitted best to always say nothing.

If you admitted nothing then a good barister that specialises in this could get you off lightly. If you copped to the speed under caution you're pretty fu(ked.

Seek out the best specialist in this line and don't roll over.

Good luck and keep us posted.

The problem is that anything more than 30mph over the limit is autpmatically classed as dangerous driving so if thats not on the charge sheet Id say you were lucky ( i mean it could be worse)

And I dont suppose he fact that you were faster aeound corners helpa any
Im afraid it is pretty serious so as above I suggest gettig a really good specialist solicitor .

Despite all the above advice, I'm afraid I only have two questions.

Why were you going so stupidly fast in a 40?

And you were caught at 97 mph, how fast WERE you going beforehand?!

A ban is a real s*** but I'm sure your be a good boy when you get back on the roads.

I don't think that would be a wise question to answer on a public forum!

So is it best just to keep stum if you get pulled for speeding. I'm always nice as pie when I get pulled over to try and not get a ticket. Worked so far ( touch wood!!)

If you don't have any points at moment I think you could get a ban of between 56 and 100 days, up to 6 points and a fine of less than £1k.

Apart from some free accomodation you will be offered plenty of bars of soap in the showers

Don't worry as goldie said the jails are full and as you need your licence for work most likely a very big fine

As mentioned before, get legal advice from a professional but I think as you rely on your licence for your livelihood they will take that into account- especially if you have people who depend on you (wife, kids etc). You won't necessarily get a ban or jail time. Expect at the very least lots of points and a very big fine.

I hope it works out for you

speed

Clean license for 38 years, just a really stupid thing.Need license as under Vosa reg so plenty of inspection driving needed. Only one in company thats old enough to get insurance cover.Good job I was on the 95 map really as car is a 4.5. My missus will miss me chauffeuring her as I dont drink. It will kill her having to drive home and me sober. May as well take up drinking again

You will have to lay it on really thick to try and mitigate the situation.

You have had a clean licence for 38 years, never been in trouble before, have family that depend on your income, have to pay your mortgage etc. You know it was a stupid thing to do and will never think about doing such a thing again, you're extremely sorry and remorseful for what has happened etc

First and foremost though, get that legal advice lol
