Fine for speeding ‘totter’

A FACTORY worker caught speeding along Spalding’s West Marsh Road has escaped a driving ban.

The incident on September 29 would have left Silvija Kalvelyte facing disqualification as a “totter” with more than 12 points on her licence, but magistrates in Spalding accepted her case for exceptional hardship on Tuesday.

The court heard how Kalvelyte would have been unable to get to work at Bakkavor Pizza in Holbeach St Marks if she lost her licence.

She was caught driving her Honda Civic at 43mph in the 30mph zone along West Marsh Road by police.

Kalvelyte (31), of West Street, Boston, was given four penalty points, fined £265 and ordered to pay a £15 victim surcharge and £43 costs.
