Speeding Defence

Speeding is the most commonly prosecuted motoring offence.

The internet is awash with websites that will try to offer you a quick fix, some of which offer a dubious guarantee that they will make your speeding ticket go away. It is unfortunately not as simple as that but there are some technicalities in relation to the correct presentation of evidence and procedure which can and do often lead to cases being dismissed. Kenway Miller Solicitors have an unparalleled record of successfully defending speeding offences.

Speed Camera

Defences to speeding can be split up into the following broad categories:-

  • Notices of intended prosecution not received or received out of time
  • Postal requisition (Court summons) not issued in time
  • Doubts over reliability of speed measuring equipment and/or reading produced
  • Lack of evidence of speed limit
  • Speed limit signage requirements not adequately met
  • Defect in notices of intended prosecution
  • Evidence of offence not presented correctly by the prosecution at trial
