Distracted driver fined
MATTHEW Gee will be less likely to change CDs when driving after facing Gayndah Magistrates Court on November 22. The 31-year-old smashed his purple Ford utility on McDonald St in Eidsvold on October 16. Gee told the court he had a “left-hand rear blow-out as I reached down to pick up a CD”. A conviction was recorded and he was ordered to pay $300 to SPERS for driving without due care and attention.
