A driver has been accused of four separate speeding offences in one day on the Orwell Bridge and A12 in Suffolk.

26-year-old April Scott of Stowmarket is due to appear before Ipswich Magistrates' Court on July 14.

She was allegedly caught twice on the bridge and on another two occasions on the A12. Her vehicle was ticketed by average speed cameras in both locations.

One of the alleged offences is that she travelled at 95mph on the Orwell Bridge in a 60mph limit. She was also accused of driving at 92mph on her return journey.

Unlikely. She'll become another of the statistics of people over the totting up limit who haven't been banned - bear in mind it was just a temporary, momentary, unintentional, inadvertent drifting over the limit, not as if she was deliberately driving too fast. And even if she was, the limit is wrong because it's perfectly safe to drive at 95mph, otherwise she wouldn't have done it would she?

So she'll get not guilty plus costs plus compensation.

Can we perhaps be a little less sexist?

Quite right. Instead of calling her a woman driver, use the description "RICH". A rich driver because she can afford a car expensive enough to do an average 95mph. Probably also rich enough to employ a clever legal representative for the magistrates court.

Why?

Because it's a widely accepted lousy practice, not least because it's a false form of reasoning and on the edge of bullying.
