A MO­TORIST ac­cused of park­ing in a dis­abled bay had his case dismissed at a Bray Dis­trict Court last Thursday.

John O’Brien, 5 Abbey Court, Wick­low town, faced a charge of park­ing his ve­hi­cle in a dis­abled park­ing space on Abbey Street, Wick­low town, on Jan­uary 1, 2018 at 1.45 a.m.

In ev­i­dence, Mr O’Brien said he was the pre­vi­ous owner of the ve­hi­cle which had been sold to the son of a friend. He had handed over the regis­tra­tion book.

When Mr O’Brien re­ceived the fixed penalty no­tice, he brought it to his friend who agreed to pay.

Solicitor David Tarrant said a mem­ber of Mr O’Brien’s fam­ily was dis­abled and that the ve­hi­cle’s regis­tra­tion had since been rec­ti­fied.

The inspector said it was ac­cepted that the car was in the pos­ses­sion of Mr O’Brien’s friend but not reg­is­tered at the time of the in­ci­dent.

Judge David Kennedy dismissed the mat­ter.
