The British for three years trying to challenge the fine at 123 dollars for speeding. He has already spent $ 37,000 during the courts, but still has not secured a cancellation.

In 2016, a man accelerated on the highway to 35 miles per hour (56 kilometers per hour) at a permitted speed of 30 miles per hour (48 kilometers per hour). After the trip, he received a fine of £ 100 (about $ 123), but the driver decided that he would not pay for it.

He stated that he always complied with the rules and never violated the speed limit, and he received a fine from the camera because the fixing device was faulty and incorrectly counted the speed of his car.

For three years of litigation, the man spent about 30 thousand pounds (37 thousand dollars) from the inheritance of his son. At the same time, the court still insists that the fine was issued lawfully, so the driver still has to pay another 123 dollars for speeding.

The man says that he regrets the money spent, and decided to dispute the fine, because he thought it would take several days and was confident that he was right. The British prosecutor explained to the BBC that the process dragged on for so long because the driver constantly provided the court with new evidence, so I had to touch on other aspects of the case that were to be considered on other dates.
