Speeding Offence Solicitor Comments on Senior Policemanís Driving Ban
One of Britainís most senior policemen has received a driving ban after pleading guilty to a speeding offence.
Meredydd Hughes, the former chairman of roads policing at the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo), admitted the speeding charge through his solicitor at Wrexham Magistratesí Court.
Hughes, who did not attend Wednesdayís hearing in person, received a driving disqualification and was banned from driving for 42 days.
Hughes, 49, of Victoria Quays, Sheffield, was clocked doing 90mph on the A5 at 8.17am on May 28. Mr. Hughes recalls that on that morning of the speeding offence he was returning from North Wales where he was on a short climbing holiday.
The court was told that Mr. Hughes had received two fixed penalty notices in the past but his driving licence was presently clean.
Carl Millar - Speeding Offence Solicitor at Carter Moore Solicitors comments - íIt just goes to show that even with the best intentions, sometimes people are unaware that they have exceeded the speeding limit or have been caught speeding. It is right that there is legislation in place for people who exceed the speed limit but sometimes special reasons may apply not to disqualify those accused of speeding. These include true emergency situations, medical reasons or fear of personal injury or death amongst others. However it would seem that Mr. Hughes did not have any special reasons or circumstances and therefore a short driving ban was necessary".
