Mr P only received a short driving ban and 12 points at Maidstone Magistrates Court rather than being banned for SIX MONTHS under the totting up rules. It was Mr P’s 4th speeding offence and he was already on 9 points. The new speeding offence could have led to another 3 points and him being banned from driving for six months. This would have had dire consequences for him and his family. Mr Betts from My brief Solicitors successfully argued that the court should only ban him for the present offence and they agreed. He was only disqualified for 28 days.
