Another Driver Avoids Revocation After Bridge Strike. 

Barrister. Helen Newbold, represented this driver at his driver conduct hearing following a bridge strike during which his vehicle became wedged.

The Traffic Commissioners’ starting point for such an incident is a revocation of their professional licence and a 6 month disqualification.

Conjoined with a hearing for the operator Helen was able to successfully challenge the evidence produced by the operator, which included in-cab video evidence of the incident.

After submissions made by Helen the Deputy Traffic Commissioner agreed that a short suspension of 11 days would be sufficient to mark the culpability admitted by the driver.
