Fixed penalty versus challenged case penalties .

Comment 3rd July 2010

The penalty for an admitted minor wrongdoing should not automaticaly be considerably less than that imposed if the plaintif wishes to challenge the conviction .

Why does this matter?

With fixed penalty fines, such as speeding , the fee of £60  is realistick , however if the plaintif feels that there are extenuating circumstances and wishes to challenge a conviction the potential fine rises to £1000 plus costs . The intimidatory effect of this is to deny justice to all but the wealthy who can afford to loose .
