€600 fine for erratic driving
A KILMORE Quay man whose erratic driving saw him cross completely over to the wrong side of the road with his partner and two children in the car has been fined €600.
Judge Donnchadh O Buachalla heard at last Tuesday's sitting of Wexford District Court how Alan Finnegan (30), of 26 Crossfarnogue, Kilmore Quay, was spotted driving 'erratically' at Sarshill, Kilmore, on December 16, 2009. The court heard he was crossing the continuous white line while driving at speed and at one stage ended up on the wrong side of the road altogether.
The Judge was informed that Finnegan's partner and two small children were in the car with him at the time.
He was fined €400 for driving without reasonable consideration and a further €200 for not displaying a tax disc.
