2x 100mph in 90 mins by same camera

Recommended Posts

 

Hi i was entering a dual CARRIAGEWAY and seen a row of traffic travelling along the carriageway was.

 

So to get in front to pull on and not have to disrupt traffic flow, i put my foot down to enter CARRIAGEWAY first.

 

As soon as i entered CARRIAGEWAY i went under a bridge.

 

On the bridge was a speed camera van and it clocked me at 102mph.

I have a rs4 so it gets up to speed quickly. 

 

As soon as i was on CARRIAGEWAY and under bridge i slowed back down.

(I dont drive at that speed and to be honest was unaware i was at that speed)

i didn't see the camera as it was behind me. 

 

However on the way back home i was in right hand lane passing slower moving traffic when i realised i wasn't going to make my exit unless i sped up to pass..... this time i seen the camera van but it was too late. Got me at 107mph.

 

All this in 90 mins. I made the wrong choices i know this. But i don't drive like this usually.

I need my license for my job.

Any advise  please?

Thanks

Start looking for a new job. I'm afraid you stand a very good chance of losing your driving licence.

Hi.

Here's a link to the Magistrates' Guidelines that tells you how they treat speeding offences. Unless you have mitigating circumstances, I think they're going to take a tough approach.

https://www.sentencingcouncil.org.uk/offences/magistrates-court/item/speeding-revised-2017/

You could try ringing a couple of local motoring lawyers and see what they think. They should talk to you initially without charging, to see if they think they can help. You can find specialists via the Law Society website.

By the same token you should at all times be aware of your surroundings and taken into consideration that your turnoff was within the next mile or so unless you were "foot flat down" type of driver that liked to weave in and out and did not take surroundings into account. 

 

This is the way the magistrate may look at it and make it very difficult to for the magistrate to find any extenuating or mitigating circumstances.  This is probably going to be a very heavy fine and loss of driving licence.  Unfortunately it will also push up your car insurance premiums in years to come as the fact that you are selling the car will not count in your favour.

 

This will be a very hard one to fight even for a top class solicitor.

When hearing two offences together they should look at totality - hitting you with 6 points on each would be a straight totting up ban for 12 pts so 6 months minimum ban unless good reason (exceptional hardship) can be shown not to implement it.  I'd expect for totality you'll probably get the Band C fine and a ban rather than a points & totting up but the bench/DJ has the final say.

 

Going 100+ to overtake so as to hit an exit is not going to give a good view to the bench/DJ over the standard of driving - even if it was just a one off.

Two different offences on two different parts of the road so probably will be treated as such. 

 

A 100mph plus as far as I am aware is a ban however it happening twice may increase the length of the ban. 

 

Even if you do not get a ban and only get points you need to notify the insurance company straight away and you may find the premiums will jump up considerably unless you are very lucky.

You face a steep uphill struggle with this.

 

The “totality” principle mentioned above applies if two offences are committed on the same occasion (for example, if you were caught speeding and with no insurance).  It will not be applicable in your case. The offences are individual and committed on separate occasions on a different stretch of road. Each of the offences attracts either a ban of up to 56 days or 6 points. If the court has in mind to ban you for each of the individual offences the bans will run concurrently, so you are unlikely to be banned for more than 56 days. If six points are the outcome for each then this puts you immediately on twelve and so liable to a six month ban for “totting up”.

 

So what can you do about this? If you receive twelve points you are entitled to argue that “exceptional hardship” (EH) will result for either you or others if you are banned. The hardship has to be “exceptional” and losing one’s job is not generally considered so (anybody needing to drive to earn a living will face such hardship). Does anybody else rely on you being able to drive and/or earn a living?  If you are banned (rather than receive points) for the individual offences you have no right to make such an argument.

 

In some respects points are a better option because you have the opportunity to make an EH argument. The downside is that if you are unsuccessful with that argument you face a longer ban than if you are simply banned for the individual offences.

 

You will also receive a fine of a week’s net income for each offence, a single “victim surcharge” of 10% of one of the fines (Min £30, Max £170) and £85 costs (all this assumes guilty pleas). The matters will almost certainly be dealt with initially by a “Single Justice” sitting alone, deciding the matter on papers and you will be notified of the hearing by means of a “Single Justice Procedure Notice”. They have six months from the date of the offences to begin this and in most areas they take all of that. You cannot attend that hearing but since a ban will be a strong consideration the SJ will almost certainly adjourn your matter for a hearing in the normal Magistrates’ Court and you will be asked to attend.

 

Make sure you complete and return the "request for driver's details" (also known as the "Section 172 notice") within the 28 days allowed. Failure to do so means you commit a separate offence for which the penalty is also six points.

My wife works in Birmingham and has to leave early each day. I do the school run as no one else to help. We also have a baby that i take and fetch from child minder, if i have any work on. (Currently none). Otherwise i look after baby. We live in a village so school is not walking distance and no school bus and the same case for child minder. And as and when i get a job i travel to all different locations.  So its not like i can get a lift to a permanent place of work either! Never had any points and ive been driving since 2001. Just a bad day. I already take medication for depression and have counselling. This is seriously going to impact that! 

Thanks to all with advice.  I genuinely don't drive like an idiot. Just 1 really bad day. I hit them speeds for seconds, selfishly to make my entrance and exit. 

Thanks again guy's.

Hi Eddie.

 

I've removed a couple of quotes from your last two posts because it made the thread quite long to read. If you're replying to the most recent post, you just need to type in the box below it rather than hitting Quote. :)

Get your thoughts together, as you have outlined above, and prepare an EH argument. Concentrate on the effect on others (this usually carries more weight) and emphasise the lack of alternatives available. You can write it down and read it to the court or simply ask the Magistrates to read it to themselves (suggest you are not confident with public speaking). As I said, you have plenty of time as it is unlikely to reach court for a number of months.

 

One other thought - I don't know if you've replied to the Section 172 requests yet, but if not it's worth a punt to enclose them in the same envelope together with a begging letter asking them to consider treating them as a a single offence. You don't really have the grounds for them to do so, but worth a try and it will cost you nothing apart from a bit of time.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • I was talked into signing up with Future Comms (future-comms.co.uk) who cold-called me to change my mobile contract to them, via 02, rather than EE. I have a small business (only me!) and it's a business contract. True, the 4G network is better for my area. This company seemed to be a marketing set-up for various telecoms companies, so I assumed anything I signed would be with 02 and didn't think it might be a problem.
       
      They sent an email whilst I was on the phone to set up the direct debit mandate with my bank which I signed electronically. That was the first, of many, problems I found. Apparently THAT was my contract, binding me to 3 years and no 'cooling off' period, because I was a 'business' (meaning any consumer rights did not apply). When I subsequently asked in writing for a copy of my contract, that is what they sent - when I argued it was a DD mandate they insisted it was my contract!
       
      2 days later they asked for my phone details to get it unlocked which I sent. 10 days later, EE closed my account, so I changed the SIM card to 02 that had come a few days before. No network! They had done nothing about unlocking it. Fortunately I was lucky with EE who managed to give me the right codes, rather than the usual 10 days to go through Samsung.
       
      By this time I was suspicious of their set-up and wanted to cancel. As I said earlier, I found myself trapped into a 3 year contract with no 14 day cooling off period (they don't offer that). Promises to deal with my complaints never happened, promised return calls neither....and on and on.
       
      Ofcom's rules apply to consumers and small businesses (under 10 employees), yet this shower don't acknowledge that. They just repeat and repeat that I am a business so it doesn't apply. To cancel the contract I have to pay the full 3 year's fees!!
       
      I would like to know if others have had similar experiences? Or does anyone know how I can maybe declare the 'contract' unenforceable? I have never before been locked into something without a clear written contract, with t&c's! And, yes, I have asked, and yes, I have been ignored.
