Should there be more to your post?
Are you asking if you have a defence?
It isn't all that unusual.
They quite often do summons at literally the eleventh hour which would be the sixth month point.
76 in a 50 mph zone is a high speed. It falls into the highest bracket of six points or a short ban of between seven to fifty six days.
The reality is that it would be points not a ban. There will be a fine of roughly one hundred percent of your weekly income, costs of £85, the court charge of £180 and the surcharge of roughly 10% of the fine.
Can I clarify anything for you?
I'm afraid not.
There is no exceptional hardship test.
You do only just fall into the highest bracket at this speed so you might be able to persuade them to impose 5 points.
But the fact remains that this is 50% over the limit.
Is there anything else you wanted to know?
