Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a solicitor based in London. I’ll be happy to assist you with your question.
What exactly would you like to know about this?
Tim you're absolutely right. For 67/40 mph the sentencing guideline is indeed 7 - 56 days disqualification or 6 points; the explanation you have given is no defence but it is mitigation although the value is somewhat diminished by the very high speed. Also if you make too much of an issue about the medical condition, DVLA may raise the issue of your fitness to hold a licence. I suggest you plead guilty, to get some discount on sentence and the financial penalty and ask the court to deal with the matter in U.S. absence. They will not disqualify in your absence but if the magistrates are thinking of disqualification they will fix a new date for you to attend and give reasons why you should not be disqualified.
Good morning - do you require any further assistance with this matter?
