I Told You So

The High Court has overturned the acquittal by a district judge of a policeman who drove very fast indeed while 'testing' a new car. A lay magistrate of this parish blogged this at the time.

There are probably a few unpaid and unqualified lay magistrates who are unable to suppress a small sigh of satisfaction at this news.

The question whether 159 mph on a motorway is dangerous is one to look at on a case by case basis, but I can see no excuse for doing 90 in a 30, whatever the time of day or night.

I wonder if they will give the case to another DJ or to a lay bench this time? Whoever gets it will have to face a full press bench!
