"Mary McKnight admitted speeding at 35mph in a 30mph zone in Oxford Road, Fined £200 and told to pay a £20 victims’ surcharge and £85 costs. Licence endorsed with three points.

Robin Clarke, 21, of Barton Village Road, Oxford, admitted speeding at 49mph in a 30mph zone. Told to pay a £20 victims’ surcharge. "

Something not quite right there. Mary McKnight does 5mph over the limit and gets a total fine of £305, but Robin Clarke does 19mph over the limit and only gets a fine of £20. He also doesn't get his licence endorsed with points either.

The law is an ****.

So the driver escapes points on his/her licence. This loophole in the Law needs to be fixed. Exploiting it should incur much greater financial penalty.

If he was driving without a licence then he was also driving without insurance. Why no charge?

Some of the speeding convictions are a joke, you're allowed 10% over the limit because speedometers aren't 100% accurate, so 35 in a 30, and 57 in a 50, are only 2mph over the limit..........and then this guy "John-Paul Gallagher, 34, of Middleton Road, Bucknell, admitted being concerned in the fraudulent evasion of a prohibition on the importation of a Class B drug, namely cannabis, in Middleton Road, Bicester, between August 1 and August 12. Also admitted theft by employee after stealing 12 watches worth a total of £13,105 from Tag Heuer in Pingle Drive, Bicester, between December 1, 2006, and December 23, 2008.
