Man caught driving 41km/h over the speed limit has suspension period reduced
Lawyer-in-charge: Lara Menon.
Our client was a 27-year-old man who, over the October long weekend, was caught exceeding the speed limit on the Hume Highway at Goulburn by 41km/h – driving at 151km/h in a 110km/h zone. As a result of this offence, our client faced a mandatory 3-month suspension of his licence. Our client relied on his licence for work as he was working as a delivery driver, delivering milk and milk products all over Sydney and regional NSW.
Lara appealed the decision of Transport for NSW and appeared in Picton Local Court requesting a review of the decision. Lara tendered subjective material on behalf of our client and made oral submissions in relation to our client’s genuine need for a licence.
The Court agreed to reduce our client’s period of suspension by one month and will now only face 2 months off the road. Lara was able to negotiate the commencement of the suspension period to be delayed by one week to allow our client to make alternative arrangements for his deliveries.
