Taking your example, consider this.

You're driving along a road at 35mph clearly breaking the unambiguous law.
On that road there are speed camera's every half a mile and you get caught by not one, but two speed camera's and get issued with two fixed penalty notices.

Have you broken the law once or twice?

When laws are written it's impossible to consider every possible edge case, that's why English law is structured the way it is. Statute and Precedence.
