A SPEEDER clocked breaking the limit on the busy A417 in Herefordshire has escaped a roads ban due to the effect it would have on family members.

Victoria Marsh appeared before magistrates in Weymouth after she was convicted of one count of exceeding a 30 miles per hour speed limit at an earlier hearing.

The court heard from the prosecutor that the 51-year-old had been caught breaking the limit while behind the wheel of a Honda in a 30 miles per hour zone on the A417 at Ashperton in Herefordshire on June 24 last year.


She had been clocked speeding by manned camera equipment, magistrates were told.

Marsh, of Court Orchard Road in Bridport, Dorset, was fined £40 and received three penalty points for the offence. She was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £50 and a £16 victim surcharge, which is used to help fund services supporting victims of crime.

No totting disqualification was made as, magistrates said, a ban would affect family members who she cares for.
