Taxi driver avoids points on her licence after telling the court that she was speeding because she was fearful of her passenger

5 Dec 2018


A female taxi driver has avoided having points put on her licence for speeding after telling the magistrates that she was fearful of her male passenger who she says made “advances”.

The taxi driver from Bournemouth was caught doing 38mph in a 30 zone, and although originally denying driving her vehicle at the time of the offence on July 14, she eventually told the judge at Poole Magistrates Court that she did indeed speed but only because she was ‘fearful of her safety’.

The Bournemouth Echo reported that Instead of handing her down points onto her driving licence as most would receive, the magistrates instead sentenced her to a 12-month conditional discharge and ordered her to pay a £20 surcharge and £85 costs.
