Isis Town and Country - - News -

A MARY­BOR­OUGH man caught driv­ing while un­li­censed has earned him­self a $1200 fine and a fur­ther two-year dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion.

Kail John Seth Weil fronted Childers Mag­is­trates Court on Fri­day, April 17, af­ter he was caught driv­ing un­li­censed on the Bruce Hwy at Ap­ple Tree Creek on Fe­bru­ary 16.

He was orig­i­nally re­quired to ap­pear on March 13, but Weil said he sim­ply “for­got” to show up and in­stead went to work.

It was al­leged po­lice re­sponded to com­plaints about a green Jeep Chero­kee wagon, and mo­bile pa­trols found the ve­hi­cle at a ser­vice sta­tion.

Weil, the driver, pro­vided his li­cence but sub­se­quent checks found it was dis­qual­i­fied un­til March.

Weil said his fe­male pas­sen­ger had driven from Gin Gin, but he took con­trol of the ve­hi­cle when she be­gan to tire. He told the court he re­gret­ted his de­ci­sion, and ad­mit­ted they should have sim­ply stopped on the side of the road.
