The Charge: on the M77 Motorway,
being a road subject to the aftermentioned Regulations, you xxx did drive a
motor car registered number xxx at a speed exceeding fifty miles per hour,
namely at a speed of
ninety eight miles per hour.
The Brief: Michael Lyon Solicitors were instructed to defend
the case as a result of a personal recommendation. The case was complicated on
the basis that our client had six live penalty points on his driving licence
and, as well as the present matter, was the subject of two further road traffic
prosecutions involving a further obligatory endorsement of six points.
The Evidence: The Police statements confirmed that the
Police had deployed the ProLaser III device and narrated various accuracy tests
that were performed at the time. It was abundantly clear that the Crown case
had two fundamental deficiencies and we were confident that our client would be
found not guilty of speeding.
The Outcome: The case proceeded to trial at Glasgow District
Court in October 2008 and our client’s plea of not guilty was accepted by the
Crown. As always, we are not willing to disclose the basis of our defences in
order to ensure our continued success
“I was referred to Michael Lyon Solicitors through a
personal friend. I was absolutely aware that the speeding case, in itself,
posed a problem and matters were simply made worse by the fact I had six live
points on my licence.
After a lot of hard work, the Crown accepted my plea of
not guilty to the speeding charge. I couldn’t believe it as the allegation was
that I was nearly twice the speed limit.
If that wasn’t enough, I was also found not guilty of a
case involving a defective tyre and an outstanding mobile phone case was
Three road traffic cases and three acquittals.
My girlfriend is now pregnant and being able to drive at
this important time has made all the difference. Michael Lyon excelled at every
given opportunity and is, without doubt, a true road traffic lawyer who can
deliver results in the most difficult of circumstances.”
