Mo­tor­cy­clist banned

Wexford People - - NEWS -

A 66-year-old mo­tor­cy­clist found on the road at Cool­brook in Welling­ton­bridge with­out in­sur­ance cover told Judge Ger­ard Haughton he had lost his 50-year-old pro­vi­sional driv­ing li­cence.

Pat Nacey of Ballingly Welling­ton­bridge pleaded guilty to hav­ing no in­sur­ance and no li­cence when stopped by Garda John Buggy in Fe­bru­ary.

Walk­ing with the aid of a crutch, he came to court with­out a solic­i­tor and en­tered a plea of guilty.

Asked why he was on the road with­out in­sur­ance, he said he had been in hos­pi­tal at Christ­mas and in­di­cated that his pol­icy was a year ex­pired.

The judge won­dered whether the in­sur­ance com­pany had looked for li­cence de­tails be­fore is­su­ing a pol­icy.

Six months was al­lowed for pay­ment of a €300 fine which came with a two-year driv­ing ban.
