Preventing people problems: “Speeding Staff”

Speeding staff

Q: One of my delivery drivers was stopped for speeding again last week doing 40 mph in a 30 mph area near a school. It is likely that he will lose his licence this time and he wants me to do a letter to the court saying he may lose his job without a licence and that he is normally a safe driver. Should I do it?

A: Well at least he hasn’t asked you to take his points for him. You can’t lie to the courts so the first question is would he really lose his job? If there are no other duties he can fulfil, the answer to that is probably yes. However saying he is normally a safe driver when he already has nine points and was speeding near a school stretches the imagination too far!
