Speed 140 in a posted 80 zone please help.

Unread post by Poploo on

So this past weekend i was stopped in my dads car going 140 in a posted 80km/h zone. The cop suspended my licence on the spot for seven days and impounded my dads car for a week. I am a g2 driver and an 18 year old female and have never had anything on my licence before nor do i plan on ever having anything ever again. Any ideas as to what could happen? I have a court date in a month, and with the new laws of a min 2000$ fine plus up to 2 years licence suspension, its safe to say i am terrified as what could happen. Please help with any advice or any relatable stories. I had no idea i was going that fast as there were no other cars on the street at the time.

You should seriously look into some legal advice.
The $2000 fine and a one year suspension were given out in court while i was there to a G2 driver who had no prior convictions and the Justice of the Peace had even considered a jail sentence. Now this was for 153 km/h in a 60 km/h zone so it was a bit more over the limit.

Agree with Decatur, seek legal representation. They might be able to find a flaw in the evidence to fight the charges on, or at least be able to reach a plea deal such as pleading to the speeding in exchange for the stunt driving charge being withdrawn.

$2500 fine and a 30 day suspension sounds fairly "normal" for this sort of offence.
