Speeding offence defence solicitors

Speeding prosecutions generally go unchallenged with motorists simply accepting speeding convictions without attending court or seeking the advice of a specialist motoring offence solicitor. If you have been charged with a speeding offence call our team free initial advice from expert solicitors 24/7 call 0203 816 9274.

Not seeking advice for a speeding offence can lead to motorists receiving unnecessary points on their driving licence or in more serious circumstances a driving disqualification through the totting up procedure if a number of points are already on a licence from previous incidents. A speeding offence can even lead to a charge for dangerous driving.

With speed cameras seemingly around every corner speeding prosecutions are a common occurrence but any conviction could have life changing consequences, with the threat of a driving disqualification and the effects it may have on you, your family and your employment it is highly advisable to consult a specialist solicitor at the earliest opportunity.

Speed camera - laser devices

Laser devices require precision of use and where an officer has not operated the device in question correctly it is possible to argue that the evidence, or speed reading, obtained should be excluded.

If a Court could not be satisfied beyond reasonable doubt that the speed reading was reliable or likely to be accurate you would be found not guilty and acquitted. In such a situation you would be entitled to recover your reasonable costs in preparing your defence.

It is essential that laser prosecutions are correctly challenged and that expert evidence is obtained from Court approved expert witnesses. A favourable expert report, together with robust and skilful cross examination of the road side officer is likely to rebut a presumption that the laser device was used correctly in your case.

Laser devices are frequently operated incorrectly by traffic officers, which leads to questionable results being obtained. The chances are if you do not believe that you were travelling at the speed alleged you probably were not and the laser was probably not used correctly in targeting your vehicle.

How Stephensons can help

At Stephensons, we have access to a variety of approved expert witnesses and an extensive library of materials and handbooks that are designed to be used by traffic officers. We therefore know how officers should be trained and how laser devices actually work.
