Man caught driv­ing un­reg­is­tered ve­hi­cle

Mansfield Courier - - News -

A MAN ap­peared at the Mans­field Mag­is­trates Court, where he faced charges for driv­ing an un­reg­is­tered work ve­hi­cle.

The ve­hi­cle was parked at the Woods Point Ho­tel, where po­lice no­ticed that it didn’t have any warn­ing or num­ber plate lights.

After pro­duc­ing a li­cence and some dis­cus­sion, the po­lice dis­cov­ered that the man had changed the reg­is­tra­tion plates of the ve­hi­cle from work plates to his own.

The man had pre­vi­ously been caught driv­ing the ve­hi­cle while un­reg­is­tered on a pub­lic hol­i­day in 2018, when he re­ceived a $420 fine on the spot.

The man was asked whether he would like to seek le­gal ad­vice, and after ac­cept­ing the of­fer, the hear­ing was ad­journed un­til fur­ther no­tice.
