We get the right balance

By 14th April 2010 January 22nd, 2019 No Comments

We dealt with a recent case at Sittingbourne Magistrates Court where one of our clients Mr H received a driving ban of 14 days rather than a mandatory disqualification of 6 months under the “totting up procedure. He fully accepted his guilt, but this shorter period allowed him to keep his job. (Previously he had been unemployed for 9 months)and more importantly the family kept their home. It struck the right balance for punishing him for his speed but kept the punishment in proportion and allowed him to contribute to society through paying tax etc. rather than claiming benefits. If you too are in a similar position please contact us today so we can try and help you.
