Speeding Fine Lawyers Edinburgh

Speeding is one of the most common road traffic offences in Scotland.

If you have been charged with a speeding offence it is recommended that you seek advice from a specialist road traffic lawyer.

Thorley Stephen Solicitors Edinburgh have an experienced team of solicitors who can give you legal advice on speeding offences in Scotland. 

Fixed Penalty Notice for Speeding Scotland

If you have been caught speeding you may have been issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN). If you have received a FPN you may have been made a conditional offer of a £60 fine and three penalty points. If you receive a FPN for a speeding fine in Scotland and wish to contest it you will have to weigh up your options. It is highly recommended that you contact a solicitor who can offer expert road traffic law advice, who can recommend whether you have a case for a defence, or whether you are better off accepting the FPN.

Speeding Fine Legal Advice Edinburgh

If you plan to go ahead and contest your speeding fine, then seeking advice from a road traffic solicitor is vital. Doing so means that you would ignore the FPN and wait for the Procurator Fiscal to issue a copy complaint with a citation to court. It is important to note that if you are convicted in court it will go on your criminal record. In cases where the driver has been accused of going ‘grossly in excess’ of the speed limit, he or she will be cited to appear in court, and no FPN will be issued beforehand. In cases such as this the penalty is likely to be more serious, with punishments including: a discretionary ban, between three and six penalty points, and a fine of up to £1000. The fine may be up to £2,500 if the speeding occurred on a motorway.
