Ayesha Ahmed, 27, of Dudley, was caught speeding in her BMW twice within five minutes by a mobile camera van parked near her home
A politics graduate has been jailed for three months after she attempted to avoid a speeding fine by paying £450 for someone else to take the three points.
Ayesha Ahmed, 27, of Dudley, West Midlands, was caught speeding at 39mph and 40mph in a 30mph zone in her BMW twice within five minutes by a mobile camera van parked near her home in July 2014.
But rather than pay for an £85 speed awareness course, a £100 fine and accepting three points on her licence, the international relations and politics graduate paid £450 to a man she did not know who claimed he could exploit a 'legal loophole' which would enable her to escape punishment.
Notices of Intended Prosecution (NIPs) sent to Ahmed were then returned to enforcement officers claiming that a woman from Walsall was behind the wheel of the BMW at the time the offences were committed.
But officers became suspicious when inquiries revealed that speeding offences by eight different drivers had been attributed to a woman living at the same Walsall address, leading to Ahmed's arrest.
During her police interview Ahmed admitted she had tried to avoid receiving the penalty points but insisted she thought the £450 was being paid to a specialist speeding fine lawyer.
She then claimed she was the victim of a scam by a fake lawyer and protested her innocence.
But the court heard Ahmed had lied and was told by prosecutors that she was not the victim of a scam by a fake lawyer as she claimed because she knew what she was doing was illegal.
Politics graduate yet complete idiot...I am innocent ...but you're not ...you were speeding.
