A KILCOOLE MAN pleaded guilty to careless driving at last week’s sitting of District Court. Matthew Kemp of Clearwater, Sea Road was charged with careless driving on Sea Road in Kilcoole on May 5 last year.
Garda Ciara Toolis told the court that around 12.30 p.m. Gardaí received a call to say that a car was driving at speed on the Sea Road.
The defence solicitor Mr. Joseph Maguire told the court that a lot of trucks were parked on the road and so Kemp had to weave through cars.
Judge Murrough Connellan said he accepted Kemp’s reason and reduced the charge to a Section 51 a and convicted and fined Kemp €150.
