80 Mph and only gets 5 penalty points

Mr F was alleged to have been speeding at 80 mph in a 40 mph zone on the outskirts of Sevenoaks in Kent. He maintained that although he was over the limit it was much less than the police stated. The prosecution relied on police officers looking at their speedometer. My brief solicitors asked for a Newton hearing to resolve the issue. The police officers failed to attend and the court therefore had to accept Mr F's version . Theyonly awarded him 5 penalty points instead of 54 days disqualification. Jeremy Betts ,defending said "it was a shame the police officers did not attend but my client was sure he only was ping a much lesser speed. The prosecution relying on just a speedometer reading would always be difficult for them to uphold. "
