A 30 year old Cheshire woman, who was caught speeding 20 times in just two months, has received leniency from the courts.

Georgia Elisabeth Carney, the owner of a beauty business, was repeatedly caught by speed cameras on the M62 between junctions 11 and 12.

She said that she was unaware the speed limit had changed from 70mph to 50mph. The tickets were sent to her car's leasing company, so she was unaware of the ongoing problem.

She argued that a driving ban would affect her business and cause her exceptional hardship.

Additionally, she said that her mother, who acted as a guarantor for her property and car lease, would also suffer as a consequence.

Her lawyer, Nicky Johnson said: "I understand this might cause some alarm considering the large number of offences in a two month period, and this may raise concern in the face of repeat offending with no regard for the restrictions in place. In the face of it, she was not aware of the fact she had fully flouted the speed limit because of a delay in her receiving the summons."

She added: "She would not be able to rely on public transport because of the places she is working and travelling to and from. It will be very difficult practically to transport the amount of equipment she has with her, which are essentially the tools of her trade. She pays rent at 595 per month and her mother is a guarantor on that property. If she is not able to work, she would not be able to afford the tenancy agreement and she would be held liable."

The magistrate told her: "You have come to court with a record offence. In all my magistrates career, this is a record for me, honestly. We have studied all the evidence presented to us, the career you have built up and the fact you rely on your own transport for all your equipment. You have amassed a total of 60 points, but we still allow you to drive and find you have special reasons to do so. Miss Carney, you need to slow down."

Carney was fined 2,000 and ordered to pay 115 for court costs.

Unaware of the changed speed limit is no excuse.
