Victims in speeding offenses ?

Unread post by unluckyspeed on

I have run into two cases in the past year where in the disclosure, the passengers in the speeding viehcle are listed under "victim". As I remembered for both cases, there were no accident, personal injuries involved, as they were just speeding offenses.

Is it a new standard practice by the PO to determine victims in speeding offenses as passengers(if any) in the viehcle? will this actually increase the severity of those offenses ?

Hope someone could shed some light.
Thanks a lot

In what part of the disclosure are they refered to as the victim?

Having passengers in the vehicle should not increase the severity of the fine/punishment if it was a normal speeding offence (i.e. no accident/injuries).

Hi Stanton,
It is on page 3 after the synopsis, the page is titled witness/victim list. and yes , both cases I observed has NO accidents nor injuries or damages of any kind. but one driver was clocked 50km + and lost DL for 7 days, I donno if that is relevant.

Thanks

entity in the report most likely in error as a victim instead of passenger. Usually chosen from a drop down list.
