SP30 Speeding Conviction Defence

SP30 Speeding Conviction Defence

If you received an SP30 Penalty it means you are accused of exceeding the statutory speed limit on a public road. Traffic Lawyer 4 U are experts in SP30 speeding offences and can help you with your case.

Remember, if any potential prosecution is to be defended successfully, the sooner work begins on your defence the better. Do not be tempted to forget about it and hope it will go away, it won’t.

With the huge increase in the number of speed cameras and the vast state resources available and dedicated to pursuing the motorist, it has never been more likely that you will be prosecuted for an SP30 speeding offense.

Usually it will be alleged that you have been photographed committing the offence by a fixed police speed camera or on a police hand held device. Alternatively you may have been followed by a police officer monitoring your speed from his own vehicle.

SP30 Speeding Ticket Penalty

In many cases a person will accept that they were speeding but will still require our help. Upon conviction for speeding you will receive between 3 – 6 penalty points and the court has the power to impose a driving ban at its discretion and a fine. This will obviously depend upon the circumstances of any speeding. There may be mitigating factors that may influence a court to minimise any penalty such as the time of the speeding, road and traffic conditions and the speed involved.

If you believe you were not speeding or other traffic offence or wish to contest the allegation, you should contact us straight away. Given that you may be in danger of a driving ban or penalty points on your driving licence you should consult a speeding offence solicitor without delay.

Speeding Ticket Special Reasons

There are also circumstances known as special reasons, where even though you accept you were speeding, it was due to for example an emergency and this caused you to exceed the speed limit. In such cases the court may be persuaded not to impose penalty points. Again in any such situation you should contact usnow.

Careless Driving

The careless driving offence actually has a very wide definition.  The driver does not have to be driving a motor vehicle but any mechanically propelled vehicle and the careless driving offence can take place not only on public roads but any other place to which the public has access.  As dedicated traffic lawyers we will not shy away from questioning, exposing and exploiting any weakness in a prosecution case against any of our clients who face an allegation of careless driving.

Driving Bans

Wherever, following a conviction under the Road Traffic Act, there is a penalty of an obligatory endorsement of penalty points or an obligatory disqualification we may be able to avoid this for you, if we can establish ‘special reasons’.

The law has very clearly stated what amounts to ‘special reasons’ and this often causes confusion in the mind of the lay person.  We advise that you contact us as soon as you are aware of a prosecution in order that the issue of ‘special reasons’ can be discussed.
In order to establish ‘special reasons’ for not endorsing a licence or not disqualifying it will usually be essential to call evidence to satisfy the court of this.

Failing to Identify Driver

The Road Traffic Act imposes a strict duty upon defendants to disclose the identity of drivers in these situations.  If you face a prosecution for failure to disclose the identity of the driver, you should contact us immediately.  We recommend that you speak to us prior to signing any documents and you should do this as soon as you receive them.
Just because the law seems onerous and puts strict duties upon people, do not assume that there are no defences to failure to disclose the identity of the driver of a motor vehicle.  There are, and success may well depend upon the speed with which you act when you are prosecuted.  Contact us immediately.

Failure to Stop

In a prosecution for failure to stop we advise that you contact us immediately.  There is a strict duty upon motorists to stop and provide information, to people who reasonably request it, after an accident involving damage to property or injury to a person.
 
It is important to note that you can be guilty of failure to stop even if the accident is no fault of yours.
 
As with lot of road traffic offences, failing to stop is widely defined.  It does not have to involve a motor vehicle as the Act refers to mechanically propelled vehicle.  The definition of ‘accident’ tends to be regarded in a common sense way.  Any ‘injury’ to a person does not have to be physical injury and can even include nervous shock.

Refusing Roadside Breath Test

You can only be convicted of failing to cooperate with a preliminary test if you do so without ‘reasonable excuse.’  Such an offence can cover several situations where a person has not cooperated with a preliminary test, but usually relate to a defendant being physically or mentally incapable of providing it or to so would entail a substantial risk to his health.  The inability to cooperate with a preliminary test, if caused by drink or drugs will not be a defence. If you face prosecution for this traffic offence you need a specialist drink drive lawyer to best represent your interests.

Speeding Ticket

Do not assume that photographic or police evidence cannot be challenged. It can. If you believe that any evidence is wrong, you should contact us immediately.  To secure a conviction, the court has to be sure as to the accuracy of any evidence, that you were speeding. If this evidence fails to meet the required standards, we will argue before the court that there should be no conviction. If the court agrees with the argument you may well avoid a driving ban.
