Dangerous Driving, Glasgow, 18 August 2015
Our client was charged with dangerous driving on the basis of a speed of 65mph in a 30mph zone. However in the particular circumstances of the case, he was ultimately convicted only of the lesser charge of careless driving. His licence was thereafter endorsed with 5 penalty points whereas he was previously facing a minimum 12 month disqualification from driving (the minimum penalty for dangerous driving). As our client relies upon his licence for his livelihood, he was understandably relieved with the outcome.
