Banned Surfleet rider involved in collision while taking bike to have its MOT
A court heard that a banned rider was involved in a collision while taking his bike for an MOT.
Brad Dunford (23), of Surfleet Road, Surfleet, admitted driving while disqualified and without a driving licence or insurance when he appeared before magistrates in Boston yesterday (Wednesday).
Daniel Pietryka, prosecuting, told the court Dunford had been disqualified from driving for a year in July 2020.
But he was involved in a road traffic collision on May 15 this year while riding his Honda
motorcycle in Swineshead Road.
Mitigating, Helen Coney said he had been riding it for its MOT so he could start to use it when his driving ban ended.
She told the court that he could not afford to have the bike transported.
“He had completed 10 months of the ban before making this foolish decision,” she said.
Dunford was fined £125 and eight penalty points were put on his licence.
He was also ordered to pay a total of £119 in court costs and charges.
