Bray People - - Bray People -

AN 18-year-old ap­pren­tice me­chanic was put off the road at Bray District Court last week. An­drew Robert­son of 43 Cois Cairn, Old Con­naught Av­enue pleaded guilty to driv­ing without in­sur­ance at Cor­bawn Drive in Shankill on May 31.

De­fence so­lic­i­tor Con­way O’Hara asked the judge to con­sider the fact that a dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion would have a se­ri­ous af­fect on Robert­son’s job.

‘The court has to view the mat­ter se­ri­ously as many peo­ple are out there driv­ing without in­sur­ance and young peo­ple seem to think that it won’t hap­pen to them,’ replied Judge Mur­rough Con­nel­lan.

For driv­ing with no in­sur­ance he con­victed and fined Robert­son ¤350 and dis­qual­i­fied him from driv­ing for two years.
