Can anybody offer some advice please? My sister phoned me last night and informed me that she had been caught speeding a couple of months ago on the M6. She was doing 74 in a roadworks area that was down to a 50. My bro in law is the owner and on recieving the good news my sis declared she was driving and sent off her details. She attached a letter of circumstance explaining that it was 7 am in the morning and my mother had been rushed into hospital and she was en route to see her. She has now recieved a letter informing her that she has been found guilty and the case has been adjurned till next monday when she should attend court in Kendal (cumbria) when she lives in Plymouth (Devon). The letter said that a ban is likely and as she works for a reputable car hire company this will seriously effect her job. The company have written her a letter explaining this. I myself got caught doing 90 in a fifty on a motorway and recieved 3 points and a 50 quid fine and think that a ban is slightly extreme especially for a first offence. Should she attend the court or does anybody know if this letter is just standard or what she should expect. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
