A MOTORCYCLIST who successfully contested a speeding charge is telling other drivers and riders that their convictions could be on shaky ground.

Mark Lindsay, from Windmill Hill, was cleared after a day-long trial in Taunton.

Let's see if the SRA is going to make a stand.

Is anyone aware of any progress with the SRA’s investigation?

It probably has more to do with the law than justice.

As they were initially unaware of the details of what happened at the time of the incident, West Yorkshire Police were probably unable to serve a NIP on the driver within 14 days.

West Yorkshire Police investigated the incident but took no further action against Mr Tomlinson following advice from the Crown Prosecution Service.

I fully accept that these devices can be used to provide corroborative evidence ( as per common law ), but, in my opinion, they cannot be used to provide specific evidence of an actual speed. The officer can state that he/she formed a prior opinion of speeding and used said machine to corroborate his opinion. The evidence from the machine can be used to "confirm" the officers opinion that the speed limit was being surpassed, but not used to produce an "actual" speed that the defendant was travelling at.

There are already examples of cases where this has happened.

For example, in the following case, the rider was being prosecuted for riding at over 100mph but the magistrates decided he was riding at 85mph.

The following story beggars belief:

Thames Valley Police has been fined £40,000 for breaching health and safety laws when a civilian worker was accidentally shot.

Motoring taxes have been handled so badly that drivers no longer trust what ministers say the charges pay for, an MPs' report says.

Inconsistency over justification for green taxes "tarnished their image", according to the transport committee.

A 30-year-old police sergeant traffic offer jailed for five months for crashing his car at more than 110mph has been cleared of dangerous driving.

Craig Bannister, of Briton Ferry, was bailed by the appeal court earlier this month after serving just 20 days.

A police officer has been jailed for causing the death of a 16-year-old schoolgirl by dangerous driving.

Pc John Dougal, 41, accelerated to 94mph (151km/h) in a 30mph zone before he hit Hayley Adamson in Newcastle's Denton Road on 19 May last year.

PPP should obtain and keep a copy of the offending video. It can be brought out at parties...

This link will take you to BBC Points West piece and it includes an extract form the traffic video.

What will the Registered Keeper be required to insure against?

Perhaps it will be the risk of the authorities being too stupid to understand the meaning of a Statutory Off Road Notification – SORN.

Here's hoping I get a partial refund of some costs within 6 months! Its all changed now. see: http://www.hmcourts-service.gov.uk/cms/4290.htm

Any outstanding costs can be recovered in the County Court via a civil action against the Chief Constable.

Dear Pepipoo,

Im working on a BBC1 consumer motoring series presented by Dominic Littlewood from 'The One Show' and I am looking into problems with parking tickets either unfair or dubiously issued tickets. We are holding a 'parking fines clinic' in Birmingham next week on Friday 21st where the public can come along and meet a panel of experts and find out if they can get their tickets overturned. The panel will consist of Ollie Mischon, transport lawyer who writes as 'Judge Tread' in the Sunday Mirror and Neil Herron who is seeking a judicial review into parking enforcement.

I am on the look out for stories in the Birmingham area that we could invite along to the clinic and I wondered if there were any interesting cases that have come in to your site which you may be prepared to help us make contact with and invite along on the day?

Kind Regards

Do you think the Government may have realised millions of registered voters are going to provide them with feedback on their ‘economic miracle’ and their Integrated Transport Policy?

QUOTE (Great Expectations by Charles Dickens - 1860)
The Constables, and the Bow-street men from London – for, this happened in the days of the extinct red-wainscoted police – were about the house for a week or two, and did pretty much what I have heard and read of like authorities doing in other such cases. They took up several obviously wrong people, and they ran their heads very hard against wrong ideas, and persisted in trying to fit the circumstances to the ideas, instead of trying to extract ideas for the circumstances. Also, they stood about the door of the Jolly Bargemen, with knowing and reserved looks that filled the whole neighbourhood with admiration; and they had a mysterious manner of taking their drink, that was almost as good as taking the culprit. But not quite, for they never did it.

Fredd may have been referring to this post cunningly disguised by the title “How to post photographs/images” and hidden in the “READ THIS FIRST - frequently asked questions” “The basics you need to know before posting on the forums”.

As you’re already on 9 points it’s probably best to consult a specialist.

Depends on the situation, the ruling in Young V Day made it clear there is no set accuracy, that between say 2jcts on an mway 3 miles apart may be OK, while 'Oxford street, London' would not, as there are landmarks available to create a better locus

This case keeps getting refered to here. Is the actual case report available anywhere on the web?

This link link will take you to a summary of the case.
