On January 8, a 53-year-old driver was caught speeding up the M3 over 100mph. Twice.
The BMW driver was called to appear at the Southampton Magistrates’ Court and, after a guilt plea, was charged a £400 fine, as well as £85 court costs and an additional £40 for victim surcharge. In the British legal system, the latter’s purpose is the compensation of potential victims to a committed infraction.
The man left with 6 points on his driving license, which he nearly lost completely but was allowed to keep due to the extenuating medical circumstances of his son.
