Driver caught doing 100mph on way home from work

1 Mins read

A Ballycastle man caught doing 100mph on his way home from work said he was in a more powerful replacement vehicle than the car he normally used.

Stephen Woods (47), of The Abbey, was detected in a 70mph zone on the Frosses Road on May 17 this year.

At Ballymena Magistrates Court on July 25, District Judge Nigel Broderick said it was his normal practice to ban anyone caught doing 100mph-plus for three months.

A defence solicitor said the father-of-two was the “sole breadwinner” in the home.

Judge Broderick said: “Time and time again we are told, with good reason, that speed is a major cause of accidents”.

Given circumstances of the defendant, a delivery driver, he said he was prepared to limit the ban to one month along with a £200 fine.
