Woman fined for careless driving

A Hamilton Parish woman has been fined $800 for careless driving.

Eveline Simons, 56, pleaded guilty in Magistrates’ Court this morning to the offence, which took place in Hamilton Parish on February 11.

The court heard that Simons, who was driving a car, collided with an auxiliary cycle that was travelling east on North Shore Road, but had indicated to turn right.

Prosecutor Loxly Ricketts said Simons had failed to see the cycle at the junction of North Shore Road and My Lord’s Bay Road.

The accident resulted in the bike rider, Ashley Belgrave, receiving abrasions to her knees.

Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo handed Simons an $800 fine and gave her ten demerit points on her licence.
