Pensioner spends dkk 250,000. to avoid speeding ticket on the 835 kr.

the 71-year-old Richard Keedwell from Yates in Bristol in England feel unfairly treated.

In 2016, he got a speeding ticket, after he during a day trip to Worcester, according to the law enforcement agencies had driven 35 miles (56 kilometers, ed.) an hour at a stretch, where you may not run more than 30 miles (48 kilometers, ed.) in an hour.

Even think Richard Keedwell in no way that he ran more than the allowable the day in november nearly three years ago. Therefore he got a big surprise when he received fartbøden.

It writes the BBC.

He had, however, no method to prove in court that he had not run for the strong. So he contacted a a video expert, which the court has explained that the police mounted camera may have been 'cheated' of a car in an adjacent lane. Or that the camera simply must have been in pieces.


Richard Keedwell had thought that the case would be closed quickly, but now, almost three years later, he calls the british legal system for 'serious fejlbarligt'.

He tells the british media that he had to appear at Worcester Magistrates' Court four times before his case was taken up. After having lost the case, he appealed it, and lost yet again in august of this year.

Now he has invested about 30,000 british pounds - equivalent to a quarter of a million Danish crowns - on the case - including 21,000 pounds on attorney fees and 7,000 in court costs in addition to the miscellaneous costs. It was otherwise money that should have gone to his son's inheritance, and now he has a bad conscience over the fact that it's going to go out of his family.

- I am sick to death of the system, as the ordinary people. I regret the amount. I would simply have justice, says the 71-year-old.

A spokesperson from the public prosecution offices in the Uk tells the BBC that some of the things that had come up in court, had led to a need for further hearings and evidence, which is why it has lasted over such a long time.
