Im­pounded and scrapped

Wexford People - - NEWS -

Gavin Howard (37) of 9 Windmill Heights, Wex­ford ran into €200 in fines when he took his newly pur­chased car onto the road.

The District Court heard that the ve­hi­cle had nei­ther tax nor NCT when in­spected at Belleville by a mem­ber of the garda traf­fic corps in Fe­bru­ary of last year. It was im­pounded and later scrapped. When the mat­ter was con­sid­ered in the District Court, the judge was told by solic­i­tor Tim Cum­mings that Howard had bought it three or four days be­fore he en­coun­tered the garda.

Two fines of €100 each were im­posed.
