Totting up case won despite 27 points

Totting up too many penalty points is the nightmare scenario that most drivers dread. Being caught by one too many speed cameras within a three-year period will result in you having to appear before the Magistrates Court facing a six-month disqualification from driving under the totting up regime.  

That’s what happened to Mr Davies when he was caught 9 times by average speed cameras within a matter of weeks.

Fortunately, Mr Davies contacted us, and we were able to build a strong case for exceptional hardship. When the case got to Court, we explained the devastating consequences that would follow if he were to serve the usual six-month totting up ban. Following consideration of the carefully crafted arguments put forward in Court, the Magistrates accepted our submissions and decided not to ban Mr Davies, despite him having 27 penalty points on his driving licence.

Here’s what our client had to say in his kind review of our services:

Having the right representation to deal with your totting up case can be crucial in determining whether your exceptional hardship argument is successful in Court.

Ban avoided following Failure to Furnish information allegation

Client review after avoiding a driving ban for failure to furnish information

With an automatic penalty of 6 points, a charge of failing to furnish information (failure to identify the driver following a requirement to do so) could have a drastic impact on your ability to drive. For example, the additional points could put you over the 12-point totting up threshold, leading to a 6 months disqualification from driving.

Thankfully here at Ashworth Motoring Law, we know the most advanced and specialised strategies of dealing with failure to furnish allegations. Such strategies can include mounting specialist defences to the allegation and advancing specific arguments to prevent a driving disqualification.

In Kate’s case, our specialised knowledge of driving laws, combined with the perfect strategy resulted in her avoiding a driving ban which would have otherwise had unimaginable consequences on her life.

Exceptional hardship – another 6-month ban avoided

In another example of our valuable guilty plea and mitigation service, our client from Gateshead faced a 6 month ban from driving after totting up too many points on her driving licence.

With a keen eye for detail, our caring lawyers listened to her personal circumstances, built a strong case and advocated on her behalf in Court about the disastrous consequences a 6 month ban would have on herself and those around her.

After the impassioned pleas from one of our specialist barristers, the Magistrates were persuaded to save her driving licence and imposed a sentence of NO BAN WHATSOEVER.

Our client was understandably very relieved and happy with the result.

When asked what she liked the best about our business, she said we were “very caring, supportive and fast”, stating that “this has been an excellent service from start to finish”.

Speeding offence – long ban avoided

In a recent case, our client from South West London avoided a six months totting up ban, despite pleading guilty to a speeding offence which should have put him over the totting up threshold thanks to the specialist advice and case strategy deployed by Ashworth Motoring Law.

Our client explains:

“With six points already, my latest speeding offence meant I was looking at a six month ban and fine on a totting up basis. Ashworth’s argued successfully for a discretionary ban of 28 days and persuaded the Magistrates accordingly. Massive respect!

When asked what he liked most about our business, he said:

“The quality of advice, excellent communication, efficient admin. The advice about referees was brilliant and influenced the Magistrates considerably. “

Not Guilty – another drug driving acquittal

Being accused of drug driving is one of the most frightening and stressful things that can happen to any motorist. A conviction could mean a driving ban, criminal conviction, loss of a career, loss of independence, the list goes on. Thankfully, with our expert motoring law solicitors on hand, the nightmare of false charges being brought can be overcome by dedicated and focused legal work to secure the rightful result – a not guilty verdict.

Our recent client from Northamptonshire talks about his recent experience:

Quote

After facing the worst few months of my life the potential risk of losing my license was the last thing I needed on top of everything else. Ashworth’s took the worry of my case away and did not lead me on into thinking I would win when I wouldn’t they clearly stated all of the issues with the evidence the police required before my trial. It would have been easy to admit guilt to the allegations even though they wasn’t true, but with Ashworth’s they gave me the confidence to fight my case.

Colette and I communicated on a daily basis and she was always there to answer any questions I had. Alison was great too and went above and beyond the night before my trial, and Stuart the barrister was great too. Couldn’t recommend these guys enough.

Not Guilty! Another driver acquitted of drug driving!

We are thrilled to release our latest client testimonial from a driver who was acquitted of drug driving earlier this month.

Drug Driving – Not Guilty/Acquitted

Quote

“Back in May I was arrested for supposedly drug driving. I knew straight away that this needed defending and a search for solicitors began. I came across Alison and her success rate was second to none, it would have been stupid not to instruct her as my solicitor. That first phone call was so daunting but straight away she put me at ease and when I told her the circumstances around my arrest, she was 100% in my corner and suggested that a number of errors and mistakes would have been made to do with my arrest alone. Moving on a few months and a couple of court dates (unfortunately the incompetence of the CPS meant that the courts honoured a couple of adjournments) we finally got the result that we were waiting for. The representation that Alison provides in court is only the best. From the barrister to the support from AML employees, you really do feel looked after. It’s that personable touch that got me through this ordeal, knowing that you were believed in right the way through when at times it felt like it would be easier throwing the towel in. Alison and her team were always confident that the case was a strong one, even when I began doubting it myself. They really do lift you up and take you through the process side by side. I was acquitted of all charges and found not guilty and it’s all because Alison is such a great solicitor. Her knowledge in this field really is second to none, I would have no issues in recommending Alison to anyone who may need her help. Straight away you will feel like a weight has been lifted. That’s what she did for me, took that burden off me and told me it’ll be alright. And it is… I will forever be thankful to Alison and her team, they have no idea”

When asked what they liked most about our services, our client wrote:

“Both Alison & Colette are so personable, friendly and approachable it’s hard not to completely trust them. They work so hard and are so knowledgeable in their field, you really do get the great result that you hope for. No question is a silly one and no panicked email or phone call is an inconvenience. There is no judgement and you instantly feel reassured.”

Another client found NOT GUILTY of Drug Driving

We are delighted to share this latest testimonial of a client who was recently acquitted of drug driving:

Drug Driving; Not Guilty!

“Before I called Ashworth Motoring Law, I was going to plead guilty as I believed I was bang to rights, but after my first call to AML I believed I had a good chance of getting off, or maybe a 50/50 chance.  As time went on, and on hearing the lady who tested my blood was not a pro, the more it was delayed, the more faith I had. My friends did not believe and were very surprised with the outcome.”

Another glowing review of our services!

Here’s what another satisfied client had to say about our services:

Alison took the time to listen to our concerns and dealt with third parties on our behalf to ensure our case was fairly dealt with. She was considerate, efficient and a lady who gets the job done and gets the results. I cannot speak highly enough of Alison and her colleagues – there is nothing she or her team could have done better.

 

Alison dealt with our case with understanding and professionalism. She fought on our behalf to ensure third parties provided testimonials to ensure our son’s case was dealt with fairly. We had gone to another solicitor before hearing about Alison’s firm and I am confident that had we stayed with that firm our son would now be serving a prison sentence. Alison ensured the barrister we got on the day was excellent, both she and one of her colleagues took the time out of their busy schedule to ensure that we were represented in the manner she requested.  From the first conversation with Alison I felt a great sense of relief that she listened to my concerns and suggested a strategy that the previous solicitors didn’t. She was not happy to accept that there was nothing that could be done and she put herself out considerably to ensure our son was represented fairly.

 

If you ever find yourself at the wrong side of the law with a motoring offence you could not do better than Ashworth Motoring Law.

Thank you so much Alison.
