Coronavirus: The Driver’s Dilemma

Crime

During the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, many businesses will still rely upon the transport system and roads to function and operate, to meet contractual obligations and to explore new commercial opportunities. An ability to drive therefore remains crucial.

The pressures to respond to customer demand, with fewer staff immediately to hand can result in speed limits being overlooked and road traffic offences potentially being committed. Business owners and employees could therefore face disqualification from driving or speeding fines at a time when the loss of a driving licence could be more significant than ever. This could impact a business with catastrophic consequences and associated financial loss.

Whether facing a totting up disqualification, or a discretionary disqualification for a speeding or other road traffic offence, each case must be considered on its own facts and circumstances.
