Driver Avoids Disqualification After Bridge strike

Helen Newbold, Barrister, represented this driver who was called in front of the Traffic Commissioner following a bridge strike on a Network Rail bridge. The Traffic Commissioners’ starting point for such an incident is a revocation of their professional licence and a 6 month disqualification. Taking the driver through the incident and the actions taken at the time along with a candid admission of his culpability in the incident resulted in a suspension of only 2 weeks.  Helen also managed to delay the immediate imposition of the suspension so as to avoid as much adverse impact on the drivers new employer as possible.
