The son of a former police officer has escaped a ban for careless driving after being clocked at up to 135mph.
The same magistrates court at Ludlow, Shropshire that let off the Telford policeman who accidently videoed himself doing 149mph in his new police car has given Adam Stammers 8 points on his licence and a £200 fine after receiving character references from his father and other family members that work for West Mercia Police.
His father, who still works for the force as a civillian support worker, said “I would like to think the fact I work for the police force had no bearing on the magistrates’ decision not to ban him”.
Yeah, right. So why mention the fact in the first place?
