Port Glasgow Speeder Avoids Dangerous Driving Charge

Mr Moore, of Port Glasgow, stated in his defence to a dangerous driving charge that he believed that a drug dealer was chasing him to harm him.

He drove 106mph in a 30mph zone but was found not guilty of dangerous driving. The car chasing him was in fact an unmarked police car but the Sheriff believed Mr Moore’s story and his special defence of ‘necessity’ was upheld.

His defence solicitor, Mr Gallagher, argued that he stopped immediately when he realised it was the police and argued that his client was previously involved in the drug scene and owed lots of money. The prosecution argued that the standard of a defence of necessity was very high but the sheriff stated that he has met every element of the test. Therefore, Mr Moore was found not guilty.
