Handbrake turn for ‘fun’
A CARELESS driving conviction was imposed on a 31-year-old community enterprise scheme worker after his Honda Accord was seen sliding around a bend sideways.
Ryan Armstrong from 15 Beachside Gardens in Courtown followed up this manoeuvre by making a handbrake turn into a driveway close to his place of residence.
He told the garda who witnessed his driving in Beachside in May that he was just having fun.
The officer was not amused and he issued the summons which brought Ryan to the District Court sitting in Gorey on October 4.
The conviction earned the offender a fine of €400.
