Motorist fined and banned for a year
A CASTLEBRIDGE man was given hefty fines and a driving ban at Gorey District Court last week after he failed to appear before the court to answer several motoring charges.
Simon John ( 43) of Ballylane, Castlebridge, Wexford, was not in court to answer charges of driving without insurance or a licence; failing to produce either afterward; and non-display of a disc on his vehicle at Ballyedmond, Gorey, on June 3 last.
The court was told he was stopped driving a green Citroen Saxo at 10.20 a.m. on the morning in question.
He didn't have his licence with him, and undertook to produce it at Castlebridge Garda Station, but did not.
There was also no tax on the car.
Judge O Buachalla fined him €1,000 for no insurance and banned him from driving for a year. For no licence, he fined him €300, and took the other matters into consideration.
