THE pro vice chancellor of a prestigious university has admitted driving 30mph above the speed limit along the A34.
Dr Amanda Jayne Kilminster, 43, of The Glen, Colliery Road, Brereton, Rugeley, avoided being disqualified from driving at Cannock Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
At an earlier hearing, Kilminster, who works at the University of Salford, pleaded guilty to exceeding the 40mph speed limit when she drove her Audi A6 70mph along the A34 Stone Road, Tittensor, on October 24.
Defending, Ian Hodnett said: “She finds it difficult to accept her car was going that speed. She is sorry.”
Before deciding upon a fine, magistrates heard Kilminster had a “substantial income” and three children in private education.
She was fined £500, ordered to pay £85 costs, a £50 victim surcharge and had six penalty points put on her licence.
