Driving Disqualification Reduced On Appeal

PF v Love

The sheriff appeal court recently dealt with the case of Mr Love who pled guilty to speeding at 93mph on a 70mph zone. The sentence in this case had appealed stated that the justice had erred in stating that English sentencing guidelines applied and that this offence fell in the middle band.

The appellant in this case did have a long driving record and the justice disqualified him from driving for 2 years. However, the sheriff appeal court considered this excessive and this was reduced to a starting point of 12 months disqualification reduced to 10 months for his guilty plea.
