High cost of mov­ing

NewsMail - - NEWS -

WHAT would a fa­ther do to help his son?

That was what mo­ti­vated Corey Wal­ters to get be­hind the wheel of a car on Novem­ber 13.

He was stopped by po­lice about 8pm along Mul­grave St, Gin Gin, be­cause the ve­hi­cle he was trav­el­ling in did not have rear reg­is­tra­tion plates.

When po­lice asked Wal­ters to pro­duce his li­cence, he told them he had never held one.

Wal­ters told po­lice he was help­ing his son move house from Wallav­ille to Gin Gin.

Wal­ters faced Bund­aberg Mag­is­trates Court charged with driv­ing without a li­cence and driv­ing an unin­sured and un­reg­is­tered car.

Mag­is­trate Belinda Mer­rin told Wal­ters there was a hefty fine in­volved and it would have been cheaper to get a li­cence.

“Yeah, it would have been,” Wal­ters said as he was fined a to­tal of $1059.
