Fined for speeding on 60mph section of the A1 carriageway
A 29-year-old man was fined Â£60 last Thursday at Banbridge Magistrates Court sitting in Newry, for a speeding offence.
Kamal Ahmad, Iveagh Drive, Belfast, was also given three penalty points.
For failing to produce his driving licence he was fined £5 and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy.
The court heard that he was detected travelling at 78mph in a 60mph zone on the A1 dual carriageway.
He was offered a fixed penalty and asked to produce his driving licence to police but did not do so.
A solicitor representing the defendant said that her client had been overtaking a lorry and that he was unaware his speed had crept up a bit.
She added that he was changing address and that was the reason the licence was not available at the time the fixed penalty notice was issued.
