Driver fined for five-year-old offences

A man has been fined $4,700 for traffic offences from up to five years ago.

Maintenance worker Craig Simmons, 58, admitted six traffic violations from 2014 and 2016.

Magistrates’ Court heard yesterday that Simmons was stopped by police in August 2016 and charged with driving a truck that was unlicensed and uninsured. He was also charged with driving without a licence.

The incident happened on Frog Lane in Devonshire.

Senior magistrate Juan Wolffe heard that Simmons was also stopped in September 2014 for riding an unlicensed and uninsured cycle on St John’s Road, Pembroke.

Simmons, from Pembroke, was given four months to pay.

Mr Wolffe told Simmons: “With all this money you could’ve bought yourself a car.”

Simmons said: “I could’ve gotten it insured, too.”
