A Slovakian national with “a laissez faire” attitude toward the rules of the road was last week fined and disqualified from driving.
Before the district court was Milan Sidilka, 74 Carmody Way, Fairgreen, Portlaoise, charged with no insurance, and using a false disc, at Fairgreen on March 17 last year.
Inspector Aidan Farrelly said that the disc displayed was for another vehicle, and Sidilka had previous convictions.
“He had a very laissez faire attitude to driving,” said defence, Mr Breen, acknowledging that Sidilka had been reckless as this was his second conviction for the same offences.
Judge Catherine Staines fined him €300 and disqualified him from driving for six years.
