Man accused of driving offences
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.
