Superstar David Beckham escapes possible driving ban.

  • Posted

The former England captain has escaped conviction of speeding after being accused of driving at 59mph in a 40mph limit.

The 43 year-old former footballer avoided points on his license that could have caused a disqualification from driving and a fine of up to £1000 (up to £2500 if speeding on a motorway) after his Solicitor argued that Beckham could not be prosecuted for the offence as a Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP) arrived 1 day outside the 14-day statutory window.
