Hello, is this your first speeding offence?
Thanks. You will not be banned. You will almost certainly receive 6 points and a fine if this matter is pursued. It may not be. They do not always as often the cameras do not record or activate properly.
This speed does include a capacity to ban but they are not going to do that on the first occasion.
There will also be costs.
Can I clarify anything for you?
You can plead by post but if this is 50 in a 30 mph zone then that is too fast for the fixed penalty Im afraid
It depends whether you are happy to attend court. Overall, generally speaking, people do get better deals if they attend court but really only from the point of view of the points or ban. The financial penalty is slightly higher.
I think overall I would go but it depends on your preferences.
There is an outside chance but I wouldn't rely on it. You are at the higher end of the relevant sentencing bracket.
If it is just over 50 then you are in the higher sentencing bracket which would attract either 6 points or a ban of between 7 - 56 days. Probably you will still get points so not much changes.
If your speedometer said 50 then probably you are slightly under though. They are generally conservative.
