      Costs must be proportional. If they are oppressive, the order may be quashed: R v Tottenham Justices ex parte Joshi [1982].

      Costs may not be used as an additional penalty: R v Highgate Justices ex parte Petrou [1954] 1 All ER 406.

        R -v- South Western Magsitrates (on the application of Purnell), a judicial review, confirms that where a defendant's means have not been examined, a fine cannot be imposed or enforced.

        It also has the hallmarks of JPs and not a District Judge dealing with the case. The fine, costs and victim surcharge are excessive.

        I agree with what Enquirer says in their post.
        Life is a journey on which we all travel, sometimes together, but never alone.

          Agreed, it's got Colonel Blimp's fingerprints all over it!

              The magistrates obviously didn't believe you gave all the information that was in your power to give.
