I was driving a 18t lorry which is 16 ft in length so smaller than some 7.5t lorries on my way to deliver to bell lane in Shrewsbury I was cut up on the island and missed my turning and in error went up London road in Shrewsbury which is one of many weight limited roads it was almost 9am and I felt it would be more dangerous to try and turn around as there is a school on that road so as my sat nav showed it wasn't a long distance to where I needed to be I carried on. I recieved a letter from trading standards to which I explained the above and that I was driving and have now recieved court summons to which I could plead guilty by post ! I don't know what is best to do how to minimise any fine or if they can give me points on my licence
