New speeding offence penalties

Drivers who face a prosecution for a speeding offence in the magistrates court after 24 April will face harsher penalties for the speeding offence.

New speeding offence sentencing guidelines have introduced new  speeding offence fines and speeding offence driving bans.

Anyone caught driving more than 101 mph in a 70 mph zone could be disqualified from driving for speeding for up to 56 days and find up to 175% of their weekly income.

If charged with speeding at 41 mph in a 20mph Zone, 51 in a 30 or 66 in a 40 zone, a speeding offence motorist could be fined up to 150% of the weekly income.

Courts have also made it clear that they are increasingly keen to impose a driving ban is for speeding offences. The services of a speeding offence defence lawyer are crucial when facing a serious speeding offence prosecution even if pleading guilty as an expert defence lawyer will give you the best chance of success in mitigating any penalty the court will impose for the speeding offence.

At TrafficLawyer4u solicitors we have 27 years experience of defending speeding offence cases and a happy to deal with any case in England and Wales at the magistrates court.

Increase in penalty points for using a mobile phone while driving

The house from 1 March 2017 the penalty for using a handheld mobile phone whilst driving increases from 3 points to 6 penalty points upon the drivers licence.

Drivers facing prosecution for using a mobile phone should seek the services of an expert traffic lawyer. As the number of penalty points for using a mobile phone while driving has doubled overnight, the number of people facing a possible driving ban because of using a mobile phone whilst driving will rapidly increase. Motorists will also face the increased risk of a totting up disqualification due to the accumulation of penalty points upon the driving licence .

A driving ban solicitor will be essential in these cases. At TrafficLawyer4U solicitors , we are expert traffic lawyers who regularly prevent a driving ban.

In addition, people caught using a mobile phone whilst driving will not have the benefit of a drivers improvement course but will face an immediate motoring prosecution for the offence of using a mobile phone whilst driving.

The fine will also increase from a fixed penalty of £100 to £200. Anyone caught using a mobile phone whilst driving should contact TrafficLawyer4U  solicitors as experts in the field of avoiding a driving ban.

Speeding offence prosecutions in the magistrates

The number of motorists facing a prosecution for a speeding offence in the magistrates court has reached a record high with 1 million people being prosecuted for speeding in 2015.

New figures from the Department of Transport show that speeding offence prosecutions have risen by more than 16% in the past two years. This has resulted in a huge number of motorists requiring the service of a speeding offence solicitor.

This has also resulted in a vast increase in the number of people facing a possible driving ban for speeding, once again requiring the service of a speeding offence solicitor.

These figures show that speeding offences were the only motoring offence to have risen over the last few years. Dangerous driving charges and driving without insurance charge have been on the decline.

An additional problem is that more and more people are facing a driving ban for speeding because they are very quickly reaching 12 points on the driving licence and face a totting up driving ban. Once again a specialist traffic lawyer, like ourselves, should be instructed as soon as the problem arises so that the motorist can avoid a driving ban.

Dangerous driving prosecution for driving while tired

An analysis of over 4500 accidents by the AAA foundation for traffic safety in Washington has found that even mild drowsiness can result in a 30% increase in the risk of a road traffic accident and the possibility of a prosecution for dangerous driving.

Drivers who lose one or two hours of sleep the night before driving  risk being involved in a road traffic accident and, it is claimed that moderate sleep deprivation causes dangerous driving just as much as being drunk, because reaction times get longer.

It is thought that at least half of the cases of causing death by dangerous driving involve the fault of tired drivers.

Motorists should take extreme care to avoid whilst driving overtired. Should they be involved in a road traffic accident they could very well face a prosecution for dangerous driving or, in the worst case scenario, a prosecution for causing death by dangerous driving.
