HIGH PRICE FOR SMOKES
A pack of cigarettes has cost Tamara Annie Janice Henderson $1250. The unlicensed 23-yearold single mum got into her car to get her father a pack of cigarettes but was pulled over by police. Police prosecutor Sergeant Karen Equinox said she was charged with three driving offences at about 8.30pm on September 30. She told police she knew it was an offence to drive without a licence and with an uninsured and unregistered vehicle. Acting magistrate Raimund Heggie said this packet of cigarettes was incredibly expensive and it was a very foolish decision. “You should be setting a better example for your child as a 23yearold,” he said. “These laws are in place to protect people, if a worse incident had happened whilst you were driving you could have had no place to go.” She was fined and disqualified from driving for six months.
