Dan­ger driver taken off the road


An epilepsy suf­ferer has ad­mit­ted driv­ing dan­ger­ously after his li­cence had been re­voked on med­i­cal grounds.

Hamil­ton Sher­iff Court heard David Mur­doch knew he suf­fered from seizures and one oc­curred while he was driv­ing on Ste­warton Street, Wishaw, on Oc­to­ber 21 last year.

Mur­doch’s car crashed into a parked ve­hi­cle which was shunted into an­other parked car.

Mur­doch then veered across the road and struck yet an­other sta­tion­ary ve­hi­cle.

Checks re­vealed his driv­ing li­cence had been re­voked by the DVLA in Jan­uary 2016.

Mur­doch, 32, of Kelso Cres­cent, Wishaw, was fined £180, dis­qual­i­fied from driv­ing for three years and or­dered to re­sit his test. He will also be con­fined to his home from 9pm to 7am each day for al­most three months un­der an elec­tronic tag­ging or­der.

The court heard Mur­doch was banned for a year in 2005, again for dan­ger­ous driv­ing.
