Mo­torist(66) es­capes ban for in­sur­ance of­fence

Enniscorthy Guardian - - NEWS -

JUDGE Ger­ard Haughton opted to ex­er­cise his dis­cre­tion not to ban a 66-year-old woman from driv­ing af­ter she ap­peared be­fore the court on a no in­sur­ance charge.

Brid­get Ke­hoe of Craan, Bun­clody, was charged with driv­ing with­out in­sur­ance at Bun­clody on May 10 of last year.

The court heard that the de­fen­dant had an­other ve­hi­cle in­sured at the time and fool­ishly opted to drive a dif­fer­ent car.

So­lic­i­tor Peter Crean asked for the le­niency of the court say­ing that his client had 40 years of clean driv­ing un­der her belt and was a farmer liv­ing ru­rally.

Judge Haughton agreed not to ban Ke­hoe, but handed her a €300 fine.
