‘Exuberance’ over beach outing during good weather may have led to motorist being uninsured

1 Mins read

DELIGHT at being out of prison may have led to a motorist using a Vauxhall Corsa without insurance on the way to Benone Beach in good weather during the summer, a defence solicitor told Coleraine Magistrates Court on Monday.

John Paul Moore (23), whose address was given as HMP Maghaberry Prison, was stopped at Main Street, Ballykelly, on June 16 this year.

Earlier police had received a report of the vehicle being driven erratically at Clooney Road in Derry/Londonderry in the direction of Limavady.

The defendant appeared at court via video link from Maghaberry and a defence solicitor said the “exuberance of his release” from prison may have played a role in events on the date in question – a sunny summer’s day.

Moore, who is a sentenced prison on other matters with a release date next summer, had pleaded guilty to using a vehicle without insurance and failing to display L plates and was banned from driving for six months and fined £275.
