Former minister fined for careless driving
Former sports minister Maxwell Burgess has been fined after admitting responsibility for an accident in which a motorcyclist and his pillion passenger were injured.
Burgess, 64, of Southampton, pleaded guilty to careless driving at Magistrates’ Court and was ordered to pay $800.
The court heard that the male motorcyclist suffered a fractured wrist after Burgess had pulled out in front of him in his car on Middle Road in Warwick on July 16.
The motorcyclist’s pillion passenger, who was his daughter, suffered road rash and bruising as a result of the incident that took place close to Warwick Post Office.
Asked in court if there was anything he wanted to say in his defence Burgess, a former United Bermuda Party MP, replied “No”.
Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo imposed ten points on Burgess’s licence as well as the fine.
