Speeding Offences

Motor Law

Bakers Motor Law Specialists will consider the evidence of the speeding camera device used and the steps that need to be followed accurately before you can be successfully prosecuted for a speeding offence. We will consider whether a valid calibration certificate is in place for the device that has been used to measure your speed and more complex procedures such as distance and alignment checks so that you can be confident in relation to the advice that you are being given.

If you choose not to challenge a speeding conviction, representation at court by our specialist advocates can have a significant impact upon the outcome of the proceedings and ensures the best possible outcome for you. Specialist representation frequently results in reduced periods of disqualification or no disqualification at all.

SENTENCES

Cases involving low speed will usually result in 3-6 penalty points and a speeding fine up to £2,500. If you are convicted of driving well over the speed limit the court will consider a disqualification from driving.
