Hi. Thanks for requesting me. I am just about to go offline for 30 mins but I can pick up later if that is OK?
Hi. I am back.
I presume this was a 70mph zone? It wasn't a reduced section?
OK. When were his last set of points?
Ok. There is no way around that then.
If this is 102 mph in a 70mph zone then he is at risk of 6 points or a short ban of between 7-56 days. The reality is that he would only get 6 points as the speed is at the lowest end of the sentencing bracket.
That does mean that he would now have 9 points on his licence though. That does not lead to totting but it does place him on the cusp of disqualification.
There will also be some financial penalties I'm afraid although probably that is not his concern.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Then he is at risk of totting.
Unless he gets a short ban.
I'm afraid that if he is a totter then he will be banned for 6 months unless he can show undue hardship.
If this is just a S172 request then I wouldn't start getting legal representation now. It might be that they will forget to summons. That does happen sometimes.
Yes, she will have to respond. So will he when they ultimately write to him.
But I wouldn't go to the expense of representation yet.
You don't need it until they actually summons and that might not happen.
I can't accept instructions directly under the rules of this site but you can always post back here if you need more guidance. It might well be something I can do remotely.
