It was amber and it was not safe to stop
Your road traffic offence question: I have incurred a fixed penalty notice for Failing to stop at a red light. It was my opinion that a vehicle was so close to me that if I had stopped it would have resulted in an accident. The lights had changed to Amber as I crossed the line and no other vehicle had started to move. I did not cause an accident or impede other motorists in this incident. Is this woth an appeal or do I take the 3 pionts and Â£60 fine?

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.
