Yes the English courts have ruled that evidence of speeding is not in isolation evidence of DD.

The Scottish courts have taken the opposite view and it is quite routine for speeding drivers in Scotland to be convicted of DD.

This seems odd. I've gained the impression that In some matters of law the Scots are more sensible than the English, but this doesn't appear to be one of them!

Best wishes all,
