Dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion for no in­surance

Bray People - - NEWS -

A man who drove with­out in­surance was at­tend­ing to an emer­gency in­volv­ing his child.

Timmy Kelly (26), 154 Mount Carmel Av­enue, Wick­low, ap­peared in Bray Dis­trict Court last Thurs­day. He was driv­ing on the N11 at Glen of the Downs on July 6, 2017. The court heard that Kelly has never come to po­lice at­ten­tion be­fore.

Solic­i­tor Joe Maguire said that on the day in ques­tion, he had moved back to Wick­low. His part­ner rang and said the child had chick­en­pox, was dis­tressed, and look­ing for their dad.

‘He fool­ishly drove,’ said Mr Maguire. ‘He re­grets it very much and apol­o­gises to the court.’ Judge David Kennedy handed down a fine of €500 and two-year dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion.
