3) At a speed exceeding the limit for that particular road.
For you to be found guilty, the Prosecution has to prove these facts ‘Beyond Reasonable Doubt’. if you are found guilty you may get 3 to 6 points on your licence or you may get a discretionary driving ban of up to 56 days if your speed was very high. In addition to this you will need to pay a victim surcharge and court costs.
