Stevenson fined $4,000 for motoring offences
A 29-year-old man was yesterday ordered to pay more than $4,000 in fines after he admitted 11 traffic offences.
Cooper Stevenson pleaded guilty in Magistrates’ Court to two counts of speeding, four counts of not having a valid licence, two counts of having no insurance, and one count each of operating an unlicensed bike, fraudulent use of documents and failure to wear a seatbelt.
Some of the offences dated back to 2009.
Stevenson, who works as a delivery truck driver, asked the court not to impose a ban as it would affect his job.
Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo told Stevenson, also a writer for The Bermudian magazine and a former reporter with The Royal Gazette: “With the slightest offence you are going to be off the road.”
Stevenson, from Sandys, was fined a total of $4,200 and given 40 demerit points.
