On the 14th October 2019 a Mr Noble attended a hearing and pleaded guilty to the breach of Poole Harbour Commission (PHC) Byelaw 2(aa) (speeding >10 kts) and to the breach of Byelaw 2(b) (speeding > 6 kts).

Mr Noble’s only “mitigation” was that he did not agree that he had been ignoring PHC’s attempts to contact him regarding this offence (Patrol Officer attempted many times to contact Mr Noble by e-mail and by phone, at his home and workplace.

Eventually Mr Noble gave in and attended the Harbour Office where he was formally cautioned).

The court deemed his mitigation to be irrelevant.

 

Mr Noble was fined £500 in respect of each offence and was ordered to pay £1,200 in respect of PHC costs as well as a £50 victim surcharge. This therefore makes a total penalty of £2,250.

 

The Magistrates also spent considerable time impressing upon Mr Noble the severity of his actions in light of the nature of his business and the need for him to educate his clients about the importance of the speed restrictions.

 

What made this one interesting is that the evidence was based solely on AIS and CCTV.
