Hand­brake turn for ‘fun’

Gorey Guardian - - NEWS -

A CARE­LESS driv­ing con­vic­tion was im­posed on a 31-year-old com­mu­nity en­ter­prise scheme worker af­ter his Honda Accord was seen slid­ing around a bend side­ways.

Ryan Arm­strong from 15 Beach­side Gar­dens in Cour­town fol­lowed up this ma­noeu­vre by mak­ing a hand­brake turn into a drive­way close to his place of res­i­dence.

He told the garda who witnessed his driv­ing in Beach­side in May that he was just hav­ing fun.

The of­fi­cer was not amused and he is­sued the sum­mons which brought Ryan to the Dis­trict Court sit­ting in Gorey on Oc­to­ber 4.

The con­vic­tion earned the offender a fine of €400.
