speeding-fine

GT Stewart represented a client charged with an offence of speeding at 38 miles per hour in a 30 mile per hour speed limit.  We were able to advance to the court the argument that our client’s speedometer on the vehicle was faulty and that there was evidence that our client had taken his car to the garage 3 times before it was finally fixed.  Our Ms Rawley successfully argued that there were special reasons, by way of extenuating circumstances, that the court ought reasonably take into account and not punish him by endorsing his licence with penalty points. The client was given an absolute discharge, with no order for costs or endorsement.
