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.

Not having years of experience as a traffic officer, I don't know, but I wasn't aware that there was an interlock betewen the blue lights, the accelerator, and the brakes that would have prevented him slowing down anyway, notwithstanding that his blue lights were still on.

Also, I note that they only fined him £50. AIUI, they could do that because DD isn't a fixed penalty offence. Had he been charged with speeding only, they couldn't have fined him less than £60.

It is patent cobblers. Stood down - lifts right foot, job done. Blue light can be switched off after slowing down. AIUI it is not complusory to be exceeding the speed limit when the Blues and twos are on, lets face it it can't be.

Image being stopped for doing 110 plus and telling the BiB you were looking for a safe place to slow down.
Or trying it in court as a civvy.

Which facts in any situation or problem are “essential” and what makes them “essential”? If the “essential” facts are said to depend on the principles involved, then the whole business, all too obviously, goes right around in a circle. In the light of one principle or set of principles, one bunch of facts will be the “essential” ones; in the light of another principle or set of principles, a different bunch of facts will be “essential.” In order to settle on the right facts you first have to pick your principles, although the whole point of finding the facts was to indicate which principles apply.

It's not like anyone would have run into the back of him at that speed, poor excuse, the appeal looks bent and will definitely help police / public relations (not)

Do you think he renewed his subscription to the 'Lodge' between sentence and appeal?

The three appeal court judges will give their reasons for their decision at a later date.
