Mo­torist banned from the roads

East Kilbride News - - NEWS -

A Mur­ray mo­torist ig­nored a no through road sign then aban­doned his car and ran away from po­lice of­fi­cers.

Jamie Thom, 32, of Kelvin Place, was fined £400 and banned from driv­ing for six months at Hamil­ton Sher­iff Court.

He ad­mit­ted driv­ing care­lessly while on bail on An­gus Av­enue, Calderwood on Novem­ber 17.

The court heard Thom wasn’t wear­ing a seat belt and was spot­ted driv­ing too fast and too close to other ve­hi­cles.

Thom also ad­mit­ted hav­ing no in­sur­ance and at­tempt­ing to de­feat the course of jus­tice by run­ning off.
