Banned driver had tall story
A MOTORIST claimed he had been banned from driving for being TOO TALL after he was seen with his head out of the roof of his car.
Adam Elliott, 26, from Newcastle, was convicted of dangerous driving after he drove along the Tyne Bridge in a convertible Ford Ka with his head poking out the top.
The 6ft 6ins car dealer, who runs I Buy Any Car North East, was accused of standing up while driving and showing off.
But after the hearing at Newcastle Crown Court, Elliott said: “I was not stood up, I am just tall.
“I pleaded guilty to this because I was advised to, but I still insist I was not standing up. It’s just because of my height.”
Elliott was given an interim driving ban of 12 months before he is sentenced next month.
