Man Spends Tens of Thousands of Dollars f*ghting $120 Speeding Fine, Still Loses

A 71-year-old man in the UK reportedly spent almost 30,000 pounds ($37,000) f*ghting a 100-pound speeding fine over several years, but in the end sill lost the case.

Retired engineer Richard Keedwell’s troubles began in November of 2016, when during a day trip to Worcester, he was clocked by police doing 35mph in a 30mph zone. Only he didn’t agree, and recalls having his day ruined by the notice of intended prosecution (NIP) he got in the mail a few days later.

He was convinced he couldn’t have been speeding, so he put down “no case to answer” on the document where he was supposed to write how he pleaded to the charges.

Furthermore, he hired a video and electronics expert to prove that there must have been something wrong with the police speed camera. Little did he know this was the beginning of a long and expensive legal battle

image Over the course of the last three years, in his quest to dispute the 100 pound fine, Keedwell spent “the best part of 30,000 pounds”, including about 21,000 pounds in barristers’ (lawyers) fees and 7,000 pounds in court costs, as well as travel expenses


image He had expected the case to be over fairly quick, but soon realized things moved at a much slower pace than he imagined. For example, it took four trips to Worcester Magistrates’ Court before his appeal was even heard

image The expert he brought in tried to convince the court that the speed camera may have been faulty or simply triggered by a car in an adjacent lane, but the judge would hear none of it. In fact, this court of action may have contributed significantly to the mounting legal fees, as a Crown Prosecution Service spokesperson told BBC that “issues raised by the defense led to the need for additional hearings and for expert evidence to be obtained”


image “I regret the amount of money. I very simply wanted justice,” an exasperated Richard Keedwell said, adding that most of the money his spent was from the inheritance he planned to leave to his sons. That’s all gone now, but he’s reportedly still considering whether to continue his legal action with another appeal at a higher court.

“I’m sick and tired at the whole system which is steamrolling ordinary people,” Keedwell concluded.

This motherfu*ka' spent his sons' inheritance, because he couldn't check his ego?


Wouldn't be surprised to hear that they suffocated his a*s in his sleep.

He prolly had a better chance giving the stacks to the officer and tell him not to show up in court.

He was only going 5 mph over. If he was being clocked by an actual police sitting in a car verses the photo radar, he might could've gotten off. Photo radar tickets are pretty much a sealed deal. But actual cops on duty typically don't care if your only going 5 over the limit. So going going 35 in a 30 really isnt a big deal. They'll definitely stop you at 40(atleast 10 over the limit) though. At least thats what Ive seen. Unless of course its the beginning or end of the month and the cops need to meet the ticket quota. Then they pretty gonna go wild with the tickets lol.
