109 mph and only gets points

Mr Betts Managing Director of this firm represented Mr C who had been stopped by the police having recorded his vehicle as travelling over 109 mph along the motorway. The Magistrates guidelines indicated that a high period of disqualification of up to 56 days would be appropriate.

But for Mr C that would be disastrous. He is an HGV driver and that would mean he would lose his livelihood.

Mr Betts managed to persuade the court to only impose 6 penalty points as well as fine and costs.

Mr C was highly delighted as this had been over his head since the incident in July.
