Robbie Savage isn't the first footballer to avoid a driving ban after being caught speeding. However, the reason the court let him off without a ban is even more tenuous than normal. The ex-footballer and Match of the Day pundit – who was caught driving at 99mph on the A1 in North Yorkshire last month – has been spared his licence to avoid having to share public transport with football fans who hate him.
