Driver was do­ing 99mph in 60 zone

The Oban Times - - News -

AN OUT- OF-WORK vol­un­teer driver lost his li­cence for three months af­ter he pleaded guilty to driv­ing at 99 miles per hour in the 60mph limit on the Ar­rivain Straight, near Tyn­drum. David Craig, 56, of Car­munnock Road, Clark­ston, had a pre­vi­ously un­blem­ished driv­ing record of 39 years.

Craig was a vol­un­teer driver for Life­savers Scot­land, an or­gan­i­sa­tion that takes peo­ple to hos­pi­tal and med­i­cal ap­point­ments, Oban Sher­iff Court heard last Wed­nes­day.

Sher­iff John Her­ald said that as Craig was un­em­ployed it was dif­fi­cult to fine him as he would not be able to af­ford to pay the fine.

Craig was dis­qual­i­fied from driv­ing for three months and fined £ 200.
