Man ac­cused of driv­ing of­fences

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Front Page - BY JON BRADY

A DUNDEE man is set to stand trial over al­le­ga­tions that he drove at speed on the wrong side of the road on a bu sy st retc h of car­riage­way.

Stu­art Logue, 28, of Cam­per­down Road, is al­leged to have forced other driv­ers to take eva­sive ac­tion as he drove into on­com­ing traf­fic be­tween Broughty Ferry and Dundee, run­ning the risk of caus­ing a col­li­sion.

Logue is al­leged to have driven dan­ger­ously along West Queen Street in Broughty Ferry, Dundee Road, Broughty Ferry Road, East Dock Street, Dock Street and the A85.

Dundee Sher­iff Court doc­u­ments claim he drove “at speed on the op­pos­ing side of the roads in the face of on­com­ing ve­hi­cles” in the car, a Seat Ibiza hatch­back. Pros­e­cu­tors also al­lege that mo­torists were forced to take eva­sive ac­tion.

Logue is fur­ther ac­cused of driv­ing through three traf­fic light-op­er­ated junc­tions when they were dis­play­ing red.

The lights at the junc­tion of Greendykes Road and Broughty Ferry Road, East Dock Street and the road lead­ing into the Gal­lagher Re­tail Park, and Slessor Gar­dens on Dock Street.

All of the above is said to have taken place on Au­gust 18 2017.

In all, the route from West Queen Street to the A85 – River­side Drive – cov­ers ap­prox­i­mately four miles.

Speed lim­its on the road vary be­tween 30mph and 40mph.

Logue, who has de­nied the of­fence, will face trial later this year.

Sher­iff Alas­tair Brown set a trial date for April 4.

An in­ter­me­di­ate diet has been ar­ranged for March 21, at which Logue is or­dained to ap­pear.
