Lesson not learned for banned driver
9:00pm Sunday 16th December 2012 in News
A MAN who admitted driving a car without insurance for a second time has been banned from the roads by a judge after he appeared at Worcester Magistrates Court.
Steven Martin, aged 20, of Tintern Avenue, off Astwood Road, Worcester was stopped by police after driving a Peugeot 406 Worcester on May 20.
Kerry Lovegrove, prosecuting, said the car showed up on the police computer as not being covered by insurance.
Martin had already had his driving licence revoked for a previous case of driving with no insurance which attracts six points.
Because he was not out of his two year probationary period his licence had already been taken off him.
He said: “I’m sorry for doing it. It’s not going to happen again.”
With six more penalty points placed on his licence by district judge Nigel Cadbury, Martin was banned from driving for six months as a totter (12 points of more on his licence).
Mr Cadbury said he gave Martin credit for his early guilty plea and ordered him to pay a fine of £110, £60 costs and a £15 victim surcharge.
