Driver fined for ‘sen­si­ble’ act

Bray People - - In Profile -

A BRAY MAN who drove with no in­sur­ance was told that his ac­tions were ‘slightly the more cor­rect thing to do’ un­der the cir­cum­stances he was in.

The court was told that on Fe­bru­ary 16 at the N11 in the Glen of the Downs, Gra­ham Smith of 104 Seacrest was driv­ing without in­sur­ance.

The court heard that Smith had de­cided to drive the car be­cause the owner of the car who is a friend of his was very drunk and at­tempt­ing to drive the car.

Smith thought that since he had re­cently passed his driv­ing test, his in­sur­ance would cover him on his friend’s car.

Judge Mur­rough Con­nel­lan said that while he couldn’t con­done any­body driv­ing without in­sur­ance in this case it was the more sen­si­ble thing to do.

He fined Smith ¤350.
