One of our traffic law experts, a former policeman with 13 years’ experience in highway patrol, was in his element grilling a constable during a defended hearing for a speeding offence. The constable had failed to conduct a valid speed check with the result that the charge against our client was defective. After hearing the prosecution’s case, the Magistrate found the case not proven beyond reasonable doubt and dismissed the charge against our client, without calling evidence from the defence. Our client was free to go, with his driving record intact.
