Have you been caught using your mobile while driving?

As it currently stands fines of up to £1000 for use of a mobile device as a phone or texting whilst driving a car with additional heavier fines of up to £2500 for driving a heavy goods vehicle bus or coach. In addition there will be 3 points levied on the licence, and it must be noted that in 2017 the government intends increasing the points section to 6 points.

As with most other cases that Banaway sees, there is often the ability to avoid a ban by arguing mitigating personal circumstances. In addition, with this type of offence, burden of proof can be tested. Often the stopping police officers fail to check if the phone was being used at the time of the alleged offence.

Testimonials

With a brake light out I was pulled over by the Police during the stop and was informed that I did not have insurance. It came as a complete shock. I was worried being taken to court for I would lose my licence and my job. The worst of it was that a payment had not gone through and I had not thought of driving without insurance. Thankfully with the right advice the case was discharged and my life was back on track.

I am a sales representative and I do around 30 thousand miles a year as part of my job. In general I am a reasonably careful driver. That being said I had picked up 9 point on my licence all for speeding though not excessively; as an example 51mph on a 40MPH dual carriageway.

I got another 62 mph in a 50 area during road works on a motorway. I was guilty as charged and faced losing my licence and for that matter my job. Thankfully the team was able to persuade the judge that I should not be banned which saved both my licence and my job.

This is the second time our family has used the services. On both times even though we dealt with different solicitors we were really impressed with the knowledge of the individuals. We wouldn’t have be able to do it without your help.
