Here the police driver explained that if I hadn't "Ignored" him when he sounded his horn at me I would have gotten away with a warning. At no point did I think he wanted to sit and have a conversation at this crossing.
They then asked me for my driving licence which I didn't have on me at the time. I offered them a bank card assuming they wanted to confirm my name but they declined. The policeman the filled out the ticket was either stupid or deaf because he spelled my middle and surnames incorrectly. Now I realise this doesn't automatically invalidate anything but would appreciate knowing if there were any grounds at all to escape the points? I feel the policeman was completely unreasonable. The punishment doesn't match the "crime". Common sense knows that of course there is very little common sense in law. I'm a careful driver that doesn't speed but made an honest mistake stopping on these lines. 3 points a Â£60 for that is over the top I feel.
Any advice you can give other than "read the highway code" is greatly appreciated. :-)
as we went across the crossing the headmistress was standing by railings . we returned to the school in question and the head said we did not proceed whilst her pupil was on it. where does my pupil and i stand regarding this matter ?

It's not easy to defend a speeding allegation and its becoming increasingly difficult with cases like this.
A new client came to us after being banned by the Magistrates for 6 months. He had accumulated 12 points within 3 years and the Magistrates court banned him for 6 months. The client tried to argue exceptional hardship on his own and the court rejected his argument.
Our client instructed us to represent him at court when he was charged with overloading a hired minibus. He had hired the minibus as he had his extended family visiting for a holiday. At the same time builders were refurbishing his house and asked him if he could help them collect some extra sand and cement. Our client agreed and they went with him to the DIY shop to collect the materials.
