Taxi driver escapes ban

Have your say

A SPEEDY taxi driver was allowed to keep his driving licence after he told Spalding magistrates he would lose his job and his home if he were banned.

William Shand (39) was clocked doing 56mph in the 30mph limit on Station Road, Tydd Gote, on April 10.

Magistrates heard he had six points on his licence from previous offences.

Shand, of Barrett Close, King’s Lynn, was fined £435 and ordered to pay £43 costs with a £15 victim surcharge at Tuesday’s hearing.
