Re: Finally some justice in the world

Well that's something, and at least he seems to have taken it on the chin and apologised. Bit tricky picking the bones out of the pro-speed group's statement at the end though. Seem to be trying to have it both ways.

Re: Finally some justice in the world

Sounds fair enough. Anyone know if his licence was previously clean? As a member of Joe Public, with a previously clean licence, that offence could possibly have been dealt with without a ban, but of course it depends on mitigating circumstances, as well as what side of bed the Magistrate got out of that morning.

He'll get a police driver and car at his disposal no doubt.

Surely the judge should have imposed a much harsher sentence considering who had committed the offence and his well publicised attitudes to 'petrolheads' .....

Yes, I should imagine so!

Tankman, you must be new here, have you 'met' our resident retired ex-tank regiment chap, Zulu Ferret?

Watch it! Paper, scissors, stone. Sandals can cut it, literally! Not that I necessarily wear them of course! I tread a fine line of ventilated, sandalised jackboots, a kind of 'middle-course'!

90mph in a 60mph zone is 30mph over the limit. This normally classes as "dangerous driving" and a ban is normally automatic.

Of course, most people caught by this are doing a ton on the motorway (also 30mph over the limit, you see).
