42MPH on a 30MPH
« on: August 28, 2023, 05:10:02 pm »
Hi,
I pass this road every day and I'm being very carful, once I must of spaced out while passing and got a speeding ticket. Any suggestions if there is a way I can challenge it or at least doing a course instead of points.

You could try posting 2 pages of the Highway Code for no apparent reason. That usually helps.
I am responsible for the accuracy of the information I post, not your ability to comprehend it.

It's a restricted road with a complaint system of street lighting: https://goo.gl/maps/YWW1uRg25PVmbGF69, so unless there were signs indicating a speed limit of 50 or more (which is exceptionally unlikely), you don't appear to have any viable defence.

Send the form back naming yourself, as long as you've not done a course within the past 3 years they should offer you one, as you're just within the threadhold.

I am not on the "motorists's side", nor am I on the "police/CPS/council's" side, I am simply in favour of the rule of law. Section 6 of the Interpretation Act 1978 applies to everything I post as it would apply to an Act of Parliament. I am a Conservative councillor, this means some people think I am "scum". I practice law in the Traffic Penalty Tribunal, London Tribunals, the First-tier tribunal for Scotland, and the Traffic Penalty Tribunal for Northern Ireland, but I am not a solicitor nor a barrister.
