Speed­ing at Bosheen Road

New Ross Standard - - NEWS -

ED­WARD DUGGAN of Mill House, 16 New­town Com­mons, New Ross at­tended the Dis­trict Court in Wex­ford to deal with a speed­ing sum­mons.

He was de­tected trav­el­ling in ex­cess of the 50 km/h limit at Bosheen Road last July.

The ac­cused motorist said that he con­sid­ered a fine of €160 and three penalty points was a bit ex­ces­sive.

He pointed out that the speed­ing oc­curred on the New Ross ring road rather than in a built up area.

In re­sponse, Judge John Chea­tle had some good news for the ac­cused and some bad. On the pos­i­tive side, the fine was pegged at €80. On the other hand, be­cause the mat­ter went all the way to court, the num­ber of penalty points go­ing on Duggan’s record was five rather than three.
