Licence kept following 'expectional hardship' argument

Carolina Bracken represented a client who pleaded guilty to driving at 76mph in a 50mph zone. Her client had to come to court as he already had 9 penalty points on his licence, and therefore fell to be disqualified as a 'totter' (someone who has 12 or more points on their licence). Carolina Bracken put forward an 'exceptional hardship' argument, and persuaded the magistrates that her client should keep his licence despite receiving an additional 6 penalty points due to his particular personal circumstances. He received a fine of £135.
