Client pled guilty for speeding at 70 mph in a 50 mph zone on the A90.
The client wished to tender a plea of guilty to the speed charge.
He had 9 points on his licence and was subject to 6 months disqualification under the totting up provisions.
We successfully argued Exceptional Hardship should apply as the client had just started a new business. He had 2 part time employees together with supporting himself and his wife.
Exceptional Hardship was found to be made out and the client was able to retain his licence.
