Patryk Zarobczynski of Garryvarren in Ballymurn was convicted of speeding at 62km/h in the 50 km/h zone in Castlebridge on the same date – again a fine of €300 was recorded;
Learner permit holder Luke Connors (27) from Raheenduff, Adamstown was convicted after he was caught driving a yellow Ford Transit in Adamstown last July without being accompanied by a qualified driver – fine €300;
James Vincent Moyles from Ballinoglough, Cleariestown prosecuted after his vehicle was clocked at 105 km/h in Ballyknock in August, breaking the 80 km/h limit on the R733 – fine €300.
