Emergency?

Question:

Metropolitan Police issued me with Speeding Offence incident warning letter, that I was doing 58mph, with Excess Limit of 18mph. I asked them, and they sent, Speed Offence Images – It was my car, they used a Gatso rsp.

I think I was driving there and then, and I recall driving my wife quickly on that Sunday morning to a hospital for an urgent check up following her recent eye operation – this is all true! I don’t want the 3 points and the fine. I want to get out of it. My question: could I use the rush to the hospital point as a good excuse to get out of this?

Dominic Says:

You must tell the truth in relation to this matter.

If you were driving fast as a result of a medical emergency then I maybe able to help you to avoid the penalty points by making a special reasons argument.

Have you got any points on your licence? If so, how many? Are you a new driver?
