Disqualified to 2070, still driving!

By johnboy - 8 November 2011 55

ACT Policing arrested and charged a 62-year-old Hughes man early this morning (November 8) after he was caught driving while disqualified in Symonston.

Around 1.10am police conducted a traffic stop on a Hyundai Excel on Narrabundah Lane in Symonston. Checks on the driver revealed he was disqualified from driving in the ACT until 2070. Further checks revealed the vehicle the man was driving was unregistered and was bearing the incorrect number plates.

The man was arrested and taken to the City Watch House. He was charged with a number of traffic offences and bailed with strict bail conditions. He will appear in the ACT Magistrates Court at a later date.

Police wish to remind all motorists they will be targeting drink-driving until the end of the year.

More speed cameras are you serious? Let me guess your a speed camera operator or somehow you directly benefit from increasing the amount of speed cameras.

Speed cameras are nothing but a complete revenue raising operation, and anyone who tries to argue any different is a complete moron or has a direct benefit from the cameras, ie government, camera operator, speed camera calibrater etc

Beautiful

You didn’t see a healthy humour in Switch’s message? 🙂

Got him hook, line and sinker!

Looks like a fish hook hanging out of someone’s mouth…

@obamabinladen, you’ve miss the point of Switches post. He has suggested in jest that more speed camera’s would have prevented this, knowing full well that despite the calls from above about how speed camera’s are the be all and end all in road safety, they would not have prevented this particular individual from being on the road unlicensed, unregistered and uninsured.

Doesn’t this just prove we need more speed cameras?

guess that proves cancelling licences has no effect on getting morons off the road.

Clearly.

I know an older bloke who lost his license over 30 years ago, and has kept driving anyway. He drives during the day, and stays away from busy areas. He has never been pulled over or caught.

And a stern talking to… I’d also like to place $10 into the pool that says he will try and drive home from the court house.

If i was judge i would be opposing bail for people like him.

I’m sure he’ll be falling over himself to obey those “strict bail conditions”, unlike all the other conditions he totally ignored (not driving while disqualified, registering your car, having legitimate number plates etc).

harvyk1 10:48 am 08 Nov 11

He must be seriously looking forwards to his 121st birthday…

2070? He’ll live till that, and continue to drive. 🙂
