Yes. Notice Issue Date is 14 March 2013 and offence date is 7 March 2013. Letter sending photographic evidence dated 10 April 2013.
Only one question - is it likely I will be asked to appear in Court or will they offer fixed penalty and points by letter once I confirm driver details?
Having confirmed driver details, received letter back from Speed Enforcement Unit stating recorded speed too high for this unit to deal with by way of fixed penalty and must be considered in a Magistrates Court. My questions are - do I need to be represented in Court? What is likely fine, penalty, disqualification? and does it usually get reduced if represented?
Also what mitigation helps to be presented to the court?
Thanks. How do you find a barrister under public access?
Based and live in Cardiff, South Wales. Avon and Somerset Constabulary Speed Enforcement Unit involved.
Hi Jo- have now received written charge, to appear in court on 30 September 2013.Charge states speeding - exceed 30 mph on restricted road - manned equipment. At end of charge states ....This offence carries penalty points. Does this mean that there is no chance of disqualification? Should I plead guilty in person or by post? Do they offer a reduction for being in person? Also this year I do not have much income however my wife is self employed. Will my fine be based on her income?
