Its a moot point, but Iâ€™d be on to any old defence solicitor I've known if I was him! I can hear the glorious bullshit as I type this:
â€œYour worships, it was the bike that was speeding, not my client. My client was actually travelling at 3 Kmph below the limit as he had a jammed throttle and, not wishing to break the law, threw himself onto the road in order to prevent a crime from being committed. His bike, being on itâ€™s side, picked up speed due to less friction and so exceeded the limit â€“ oh and his mother dropped him on his head when he was two, so he should be acquittedâ€.
