Riding at more than 100km/h costs man ban and fine

A motorcyclist was banned from the roads for three months yesterday and fined $1,000 after he was caught riding at nearly three times the speed limit.

Rayjuan Seymour, 26, pleaded guilty in Magistrates’ Court to speeding at 102km/h.

Magistrate Maxanne Anderson told him: “That speed is unacceptable. With everything happening on our roads these days, you could have killed someone and you could have killed yourself.”

The speed limit is 35km/h.

The incident happened on July 26 last year near Kindley Field Road in St George’s.

The court heard that the offence was the second speeding conviction Seymour had clocked up in the space of two years.

Ms Anderson ordered Seymour, from St George’s, to pay the fine by the end of the day.
