Via a Gatsometer photographed doing 40 in a 30mph. I admit speeding but there are mitigating circumstances ie 5.41am, no other traffic; area unknown to me; looked run down; semi-dark and being harrassed by men in a white van using disgusting language, moonies etc so I was attempting to get away from them so feel I should argue my case – am I right to do so?
You have a potential special reasons argument to avoid the points. You would need to reject the ticket and ask for a court hearing. We have won many similar cases with drivers that have been harassed or threatened.
It may be worth trying to persuade the police to let the matter go. We succeed in doing this just over 75% of the time.
