The call comes in the wake of the case of UNISON member Paul Stockbridge, who was in court today accused of breaking the speed limit. Mr Stockbridge pleaded not guilty on the advice of UNISON when he appeared before magistrates in Stafford. He had been caught on camera doing 41 mph in a 30 mph zone, in the early hours of the morning.
