Unin­sured driver had ex­ces­sively worn tyres

Enniscorthy Guardian - - NEWS -

A MO­TOR in­sur­ance sum­mons led to a court ap­pear­ance in Gorey for Aaron Cur­ran (26) from Mon­bay in Craan­ford.

The ac­cused proved un­able to prove that he was in­sured at Kil­nahue on March 7 in 2015.

The BMW in which he was stopped on that oc­ca­sion had two ex­ces­sively worn tyres.

Cur­ran told Judge Ger­ard Haughton he had bor­rowed the ve­hi­cle in ques­tion in or­der to as­sist his then part­ner’s mother to move.

In the wit­ness box he stated that he had asked his ex-part­ner – a woman called Shauna Kelly – to trans­fer the in­sur­ance. How­ever, the cou­ple later went through a very bad break up. By the time the in­sur­ance sum­mons ar­rived, he told the court, they were not talk­ing to each other and he had not man­aged to trace her since.

As a re­sult, there was no rel­e­vant in­sur­ance doc­u­men­ta­tion avail­able to the court.

Cur­ran was fined €400 for hav­ing no in­sur­ance, plus €100 each for the two bald tyres and €100 for hav­ing no mo­tor tax ex­hib­ited on the BMW – a to­tal bill of €700.
