Â*Â*You do realise 47 years ago he (The Duke) was 50


Are there any conclusions to be drawn from the results of your
calculations?


Inference rather than conclusion

He was (could be considered ) old way back when you first passed
(OK 50 is no big deal really but would be considered by most as 'getting
on' ) but the main thing is he is too(IMHO) old to still be driving
himself .


The big question is, can he be prosecuted?
All court cases are The Crown vs X.
X in this case is Her husband.

According to Mr Loophole, if the low fying Sun wriggle does not work, he can hand in his licence instead.

Where (and what) was the inference to be drawn?

Thank you for expressing your humble opinion, by the way.

How would that be a better outcome than anything a court could impose?

The fine (if any) would be negligible (to the Duke at least). The real
punishment would be a licence endorsement and/or a disqualification,
neither of which has the slightest effect in cases where one is prepared
to voluntarily surrender one's driving licence.

He has now handed in his licence - sensible move!
