    Footballer Receives Massive Fine | Kangs Motoring Offences Solicitors

    Southampton footballer, Mario Lemina, has been fined £96,425 and banned from driving for a year after failing to report the identity of the driver of his speeding car.

    The Magistrates dropped the speeding charges but Lemina received eighteen points on his non –UK driving licence thereby increasing the number of points on his licence to thirty nine.

    This level of fine substantially exceeds the £86,000 imposed on media celebrity Ant McPartlin in April of this year.

    The Circumstances | Kangs Motoring Offences Defence Team

    • Lemina pleaded guilty at Aldershot Magistrates’ Court to three counts of failing to identify the driver of his car when it was recorded breaking the speed limit.
    • The fine imposed is purported to represent three times his weekly salary and was calculated under the Revised Sentencing Regime introduced in April 2017

    The Relevant Law | Kangs Driving Offences Advisory Solicitors

    Section 172 of the Road Traffic Act 1988:

    provides that it is a criminal offence committed by the keeper of a vehicle:

    • where the driver of a vehicle is alleged to have committed a driving offence and the keeper of that vehicle fails to identify the driver.
    • the keeper of the vehicle has twenty eight days to provide the details of the driver at the time of the alleged offence from the date of service of the notice requiring them to do so.
    • the sentence for failing to provide the driver information is designed to reflect the sentence that would have been imposed for the actual speeding offence.

    Sentencing Guidelines | Kangs Road Traffic Law Advisory Team

    For failing to provide driver information, the Sentencing Guidelines provide:

    • the court may impose a Level 3 fine of up to £1000.
    • the fine should be calculated by reference to the Band Range C, with a starting point of 150% of the defendant’s weekly income, and a range of 125% to 175% of defendant’s weekly income (depending on the seriousness of the offence).
    • for the imposition of 6 penalty points.

    The Magistrates do, however, have the discretion in more serious cases, such as Mr Lemina’s, to impose much higher fines under Bands D to F that have starting points of between 250% and 600% of the defendant’s weekly  income.
