Ex-partner cancelled man’s car insurance
A WOMAN cancelled her ex-boyfriend’s insurance shortly after they parted but didn’t tell him, Wicklow District Court heard on St Valentine’s Day.
Ivan Clinch (33), 23 Bulford Crescent, Kilcoole, appeared before the court to face a charge of driving without insurance at Main Street, Kilcoole, on March 13, 2015.
Solicitor David Tarrant said that while his client admitted not having insurance, he had an explanation.
Clinch’s ex-partner told the court that they broke up and she cancelled the insurance coming from her account. ‘I was angry at him,’ she said. ‘He didn’t know.’
‘You cancelled his insurance and didn’t tell him?’ Judge David Kennedy asked the woman. ‘You must be very proud of yourself.’ Judge Kennedy said that he would not impose a disqualification. He fined Clinch €250 for having no insurance and €150 for holding a mobile phone while driving.
