Practice and Procedure

R (on the application of SEROKA) v REDHILL MAGISTRATES' COURT (2012)

PUBLISHED October 31, 2012

[2012] EWHC 3827 (Admin)

The approval by the Secretary of State for the Home Department of a Gatso speed measuring device did not require that a secondary check be performed in order to corroborate the primary evidence produced by the device for the purpose of a speeding offence. However, a speeding conviction was unsafe where a magistrates' court appeared to have taken secondary evidence into account and it was uncertain that they would have convicted on the primary evidence alone.
