Have you ever noticed how celebrities commonly get out of paying speeding tickets completely? Well, you don’t have to be rich or famous to appeal a speeding or parking fine successfully. That’s why, here at the Speeding Barrister, whether you’re guilty of speeding or not, it’s best to investigate all legal options before you pay the fine. The Speeding Barrister is here to help you with any issues you have regarding a speeding ticket.

How Speeding is Caught

The police have a variety of techniques in place to catch people speeding on the roads, including speed cameras (fixed or mobile), laser guns, following speed checks, radar guns and so much more! In fact, there are now around 50 variants of speed recording equipment in use on the UK’s roads. That’s a vast number of devices all designed to catch people speeding. However, the complexity of equipment, variables in accuracy and more can work to your advantage.

How to Get Out of a Speeding Ticket in Court

Did you know that just because a police officer says you were speeding it’s not enough to prove guilt? The police and the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) will drop a case if an error arises or is brought to their attention. At the Speeding Barrister, we can often find a loophole to bring to the attention of the police and have the case dropped, if they are unable to answer the defence. Here at the Speeding Barrister, we actively search out loopholes for you so that you can successfully get out of a speeding ticket in court.

With the Speeding Barrister on your case, there is no need to worry. We actively search out relevant loopholes and have the knowledge and experience to handle your case with complete professionalism.

Consequences of a Speeding Ticket

The consequences of a speeding ticket don’t just stop at you paying the fine, often you face the prospect of having points added to your licence and a rise in your car insurance payments as a result. Nobody wants that! That’s why, before you pay the price, it is wise to consult the Speeding Barrister to discuss your case. There are all sorts of things that can be argued and evidence that can be found to support your case but, unless you challenge your speeding ticket, you will never find out.

Drug Driving Acquittal

My client, an 18-year-old man of impeccable character, had been stopped by the police shortly after midnight, on suspicion of drug driving. They alleged – though my client denied this – that he had been speeding and that his car had been weaving in the carriageway. (more…)

The £50,000 Pint – A Sobering Thought!

The Times recently reported that, following the first rise in road injuries caused by drinking and driving in over 10 years, the Government is going on the offensive against those who drive over the limit. In support of this the Department of Transport has published figures demonstrating that, for the average person, the cost of conviction for a first-time offence is between £20,000 and £50,800. (more…)

Tower Bridge (SPECS) Acquittal

As those who use it frequently may know (particularly if they’ve ever been “done”) the speed limit on Tower Bridge is 20 mph and the system the police use to enforce that limit is the apparently foolproof, SPECS speed detection device. This system is, in some ways, just a glorified but far more expensive Gatso device; at least as far as the secondary evidence part of the Gatso system is concerned – i.e. this is a time over distance = speed, detection device.  (more…)

The £2.7 Million Traffic Camera!

BBC News ran a TV report concerning the most profitable (for the authorities!) traffic camera in the UK. The camera is at a junction of the Kings Road in West London and is operated by Hammersmith & Fulham Council. Last year this “golden camera” earned the Borough a staggering £2.7 million in fines for drivers allegedly caught jumping red lights; with individual fines up to £130 per offence.  (more…)

Reduction of Driving Disqualification on Appeal

If you have just received a “totting” disqualification, having clocked up 12 or more penalty points, then the last thing you probably want to experience are more court proceedings and more lawyers! However, providing you do it within 21 days, then you have an automatic right of appeal to a Crown Court Judge sitting with two JP’s; who will have had no dealings with the matter in the Magistrates’ Court. (more…)

Stop Delaying Justice

Quite properly the courts have always been keen that speeding ticket and other motoring cases should be dealt with as quickly as possible. Now, however, as a result of an initiative called Stop Delaying Justice, Magistrates’ are becoming increasingly reluctant to grant any form of adjournment. The idea is that cases should be dealt with at the first hearing or, if there is to be a trial, then at that second hearing i.e. by acquittal or guilty verdict and sentence. (more…)

CPS Mistake Leads to Acquittal at 101 mph!

Salisbury Magistrates’ Court was a happy venue for my client who was due to face trial having picked up a speeding ticket for allegedly doing 101 mph in his BMW on the A303. The case had been set down for trial over two months previously and everything required to be done by the defence had been done. The same could not be said of the CPS!  (more…)

Prosecution Service Blunders Lead to Acquittals!

“Court case blunders are blamed on Crown Prosecutors” reported The Times recently. The CPS Inspectorate, which spends its time checking the competence of the CPS, found that mistakes were being made in 7% of cases. Of the 900,000 cases taken to the Crown Court every year , 63,000 should never have been brought or were wrongly dropped.  (more…)
