Speeding - Road Traffic Lawyers Glasgow

Speeding is the most common driving offence you may be charged with.

A conviction of speeding in Scotland can lead to the imposition of three to six penalty points, and the Court retains a discretionary power to disqualify you from driving in circumstances where the alleged speed is deemed to be grossly excessive.

If you have received a speeding charge, contact our speeding offence lawyers to schedule a consultation and discuss your legal options. Save your licence today.

Have You Been Charged With Speeding?

If you have been charged with speeding, you may not be at risk of disqualification but may have received a fixed penalty notice or conditional offer carrying a fine and three-point endorsement, and you consider the avoidance of a further three penalty points on your licence to be a worthwhile pursuit.

If so, you have a period of 28 days from the issue of the fixed penalty notice either to conform to its terms or to challenge it by having your case heard in court. Alternatively, you may be facing the possibility of disqualification either as a result of grossly excessive speed or by virtue of the fact a further three penalty points would bring you to having incurred 12 or more points on your licence within three years (‘totting up’).

If this is the case, and you have received a Notice of Intended Prosecution or a formal court citation for speeding, it is important that you seek legal advice at the earliest opportunity.

Criminal Defence FAQs

If you are arrested or detained for a crime in Scotland, the police must inform you of your rights, such as the right to legal representation. You will be taken to a police station, where you may be detained for up to 12 hours without charge. After this time, you must either be charged or released, or the period extended. If charged, you may be held in custody for up to 24 hours before being brought before a court. The court will then decide whether to grant bail or remand you in custody until your trial.

Yes, in Scotland, being released on an undertaking is similar to being released on bail. Undertakings can be issued to individuals who have been arrested or charged, specifying a date and time to appear in court. A bail undertaking typically involves being charged with a crime and then released with a promise to attend a hearing. Both bail and undertakings come with certain conditions that must be met, such as attending all court dates and not committing any further offences. However, breaching bail or undertaking conditions can lead to prosecution and a prison sentence of up to twelve months.

Yes, if you are in police custody in Scotland, you have the right to free legal advice from a solicitor. This advice is available over the phone or at the police station. You should be informed about this right before being questioned, and the police must wait for the solicitor to arrive before questioning begins. However, if you do not want a solicitor present during questioning, you can waive this right, although it is not recommended. If you are under 18 or a vulnerable adult, you must have a solicitor present during questioning.

If your case goes to court, the Procurator Fiscal will decide which court it will be heard in. The court will review the evidence and then make a decision based on the facts of the case and the relevant law. If you are found guilty, you may face penalties such as fines, community service, or imprisonment. If you are found not guilty, you will be acquitted of the charges, and your case will be closed. It is important to seek legal advice and representation if you are facing criminal charges in Scotland.
