Driver pleads su­per­sti­tion

Mercury (Hobart) - - NEWS -

A SUPERSTITI­OUS man on driv­ing charges has de­clined to en­ter a plea be­fore a Ho­bart mag­is­trate be­cause “I don’t like plead­ing guilty on the 13th”.

Alan Wil­liam Jones faced the Ho­bart Mag­is­trates Court yes­ter­day charged with driv­ing un­li­censed, unin­sured and in an un­reg­is­tered car.

But he asked for an ad­journ­ment given the date was Novem­ber 13. “It’s your un­lucky day when a 13th falls on a Wed­nes­day,” a be­mused Mag­is­trate Chris Web­ster replied to the man’s re­quest.

“Any­one else got a su­per­sti­tion?” The case was ad­journed to De­cem­ber 18.
