Had no belt on
A MAN WHO didn’t have the money to pay a fixed charge notice was fined €80 when he appeared before Judge Murrough Connellan at last Tuesday’s sitting of Wicklow District Court.
Richard Slator, 44 Brooklands, Wicklow was charged with driving without a seat belt at Ballinaclough, Ashford on April 24, 2008.
Slator (32) was in court to meet the charge and said he had tried to pay the fine but was too late. He said he hadn’t the money to pay it in time.
Judge Connellan then fined him €80.
