Driver is caught on cam­era

The Oban Times - - News -

A MAN has been fined £200 and given six penalty points for care­less driv­ing near Bar­cal­dine, which was videoed by an off- duty po­lice­man.

An­thony Lyn Harris, of Druimnich, Glen­bor­ro­dale, Achar­a­cle, ad­mit­ted driv­ing care­lessly on Fe­bru­ary 22 this year when he over­took a ve­hi­cle with a trailer on the A828 near the Scot­tish Sea Life Sanc­tu­ary, past an ob­scured junc­tion towards a blind left­hand bend, and in the face of on­com­ing traf­fic. It caused an on­com­ing ve­hi­cle to take eva­sive ac­tion to avoid a col­li­sion.

Procu­ra­tor fis­cal Eoin McGinty told Oban Sher­iff Court last Tues­day, Au­gust 16, that an off- duty po­lice of­fi­cer had recorded the incident with a dash- cam fit­ted on the car.

Harris, a 68-year- old re­tiree rep­re­sent­ing him­self, told the court he had held a driv­ing li­cence for 51 years, and Sher­iff Ruth An­der­son QC ac­knowl­edged: ‘Your li­cence is clean.’ Sher­iff An­der­son im­posed six penalty points on Harris’s driv­ing li­cence, and a fine of £200.
