Mo­torist is put of the road for two years

Bray People - - Council Report -

A DRIVER man was put off the road for two years and one day when he ap­peared be­fore Judge Mur­rough Con­nel­lan at last Tues­day’s sit­ting of Wick­low District Court.

Pa­trick Sheri­dan, Car­a­van 2, Bally­beg, Rath­new, was charged with driv­ing without in­sur­ance and fail­ing to pro­duce in­sur­ance at Rath­more, Ash­ford on April 16, 2008.

Act­ing for Sheri­dan so­lic­i­tor David Tar­rant said Sheri­dan had a UK driv­ing li­cence which he pro­duced. He also had a UK in­sur­ance pol­icy which had been can­celled ‘un­awares to him’.

He said that Sheri­dan was over and back to Eng­land on a reg­u­lar ba­sis and had a per­ma­nent ad­dress over there.

He said the pol­icy had been can­celled on De­cem­ber 24 by ac­ci­dent but Sheri­dan hadn’t re­alised the pol­icy had been stopped. He was fully in­sured now Mr. Tar­rant said. Judge Con­nel­lan said he found it dif­fi­cult to ac­cept that the in­sur­ance had been can­celled in De­cem­ber yet Sheri­dan hadn’t re­alised nor had his checked his bank state­ments.

He fined him €350 and put him off the road for two years and one day in re­spect of the no in­sur­ance charge and marked the other mat­ter proven and taken into ac­count.
