A MAN taking his car to the mechanic for repair works who was stopped driving by gardaí without any documentation was fined and put off the road at last week’s district court.
Krzysztof Noske, of 15 Lawlor Way, Fairgreen Village, Portlaoise, was stopped driving at the Dublin Road, Portlaoise, on March 3 this year. He had no insurance, NCT, road tax or learner plates and was an unaccompanied learner driver. He was also charged with displaying a void tax disc.
Defence, Mr Philip Meagher explained that his client was bringing the car to the mechanic to have works carried out when he was stopped by gardaí. In relation to the void disc, Mr Meagher said that Noske had purchased the car through a magazine and the documents came with the vehicle.
For no insurance, Noske was fined €400 and disqualified from driving for two years. For no tax he was fined €200, for no NCT he was fined €150, and for not displaying learner plates he was fined €100. The void disc was taken into consideration.
