Company director clocked at 119mph in BMW pleads ‘exceptional hardship’: says he’s broke

He said he was getting £975 per month in benefits but had to pay £345 of that in rent and when asked about getting to the gym, he said: “It’s in the middle of nowhere on an industrial estate.

”I would have to get a taxi to the bus stop and then a bus and then the same on the way back. I would only be able to do that once a week because of the price.”

He confirmed he ran a business but said he’d had a breakdown during lockdown and claimed the only thing he now owns is his BMW.

Refusing the application, the magistrates banned Crawford from driving for six months, fined him £120 and made him pay £136 in costs and victim surcharge.
