Speeder avoids disqualification

Carolina Bracken's client pleaded guilty to driving at 102mph in a 70mph zone. He had to come to court rather than accept his penalty administratively as there was a risk of disqualification due to his speed. Following mitigation, the magistrates decided that it would not be appropriate to disqualify Carolina Bracken's client. Instead, they imposed 6 penalty points and a fine. The client was particularly relieved that he had kept his licence, as his job as a sale representative involved driving all over the country.
