In quoting that news report, what exactly is your point?

She was convicted. She was banned, and in spite of her appeal she is still disqualified. So how is that an example of one law for one, another for the public?

No one has said that moving out of the way of an emergency vhicle isn't mitigation. I believe it should be, and in most cases, unless it causes danger should be a defence.

It certainly isn't the issue that it has been portrayed by some. There have not been howls of protest in the press in connection with it, which you would expect.

I think you allagation that the chap apparently told to plead guilty is a confession taken under duress is not really a fair assessment, if it did indeed happen as he discribes, then it is very worrying and hardly shows the impariality of the court system.
