Man hit with fine for fill­ing out penalty no­tice form wrongly

Bray People - - News -

FAIL­URE TO fill out a form prop­erly led to a fixed penalty no­tice go­ing un­paid, Gorey District Court was told last week.

Paul Har­ris (33) of 31 Ard na Graine, Bray, Co. Wick­low, had been caught trav­el­ling at 128 km/h in a 100 km/h zone at Park­baun, Inch, Gorey. He had paid the fine, but on the form, omit­ted to write his name in block cap­i­tals in the space pro­vided. He had signed it, and his name was printed on the form, so­lic­i­tor David Tar­rant pointed out, com­ment­ing that this was an ‘aw­ful waste of court time’. ‘The money was sent in and re­turned,’ he said.

Judge O Buachalla com­mented that his hands were tied in the mat­ter and im­posed a fine of € 130.
