How to cop a speed­ing ticket

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

A Whyan­beel man’s dis­sat­is­fac­tion over re­ceiv­ing a ticket from po­lice has landed him with three charges. The 44-year-old was given a ticket for a traf­fic of­fence, fail­ing to keep to the left of the white line, on Septem­ber 25 on Cap­tain Cook High­way near the Port Dou­glas en­trance. The man, who was rid­ing a mo­tor­cy­cle, al­legedly ripped up the ticket and lay down in the mid­dle of the road, where­upon po­lice charged him with pub­lic nui­sance.

Co­in­ci­den­tally, the man was found to be in pos­ses­sion of cannabis and a smok­ing uten­sil and was fur­ther charged with those of­fences. The man will ap­pear in the Moss­man mag­is­trates court on Oc­to­ber 16.

MEAN­WHILE ON Septem­ber 24 po­lice charged two women with pos­ses­sion of small amounts of cannabis and pos­ses­sion of a bong, on two sep­a­rate oc­ca­sions. Both women will go to court on Oc­to­ber 16.
