This is an interesting snippet of news..
Apparently there is a landmark case being heard in a Manchester court at the moment, which if it is won may mean the return of £600 million in speeding fines and fees.
The case is being brought by a gentleman called Aitken Brotherstone who is adamant that the LTI 20/20 Speedscope laser gun, which apparently clocked him doing 52 in a 40 zone had provided an accurate reading.
Part of his defence is that all the speed cameras introduced in the UK since 1992 are illegal due to the way in which the law introducing them was initially implemented. His defence barrister is claiming that each successive Home Secretary since Michael Howard had implemented their own schemes of ministerial approval for speed cameras, and were in the wrong to pass speed camera devices, such as the LTI 20/20 without parliamentary scrutiny.
Could you imagine it if he does win? How many people will have speeding fines returned to them? Plus how about all those points being taken back off their driving licences! And don’t forget about bans being lifted!!
I think I may be very interesting indeed if he does win! Chaos at it’s best!
I will keep you informed as and when more news is released about this!
