When you are in a society where your celebrity status counts for less as far as the laws of the land are concerned; then you must respect rules.

For now, it seems David Beckham is in soup as he is facing a speeding charge having been accused of driving a Bentley over the limit in a 40mph zone.

The former Manchester United and England midfielder allegedly drove at 59mph on the A40 at Paddington in west London on January 23.

Beckham's case is listed on Tuesday at Lavender Hill Magistrates' Court in south-west London.

The 43-year-old is charged with exceeding a 40mph speed limit in contravention of a local traffic order.

A not guilty plea was entered on August 17, according to the court list.

The minimum penalty for speeding is a £100 fine and 3 penalty points added to your license.

One could be disqualified from driving if the individual builds up 12 or more penalty points within a period of 3 years.
