A man who appeared at last week’s sitting of Longford District Court charged under the Road Traffic Act was convicted and fined €250.

Milan Cervenak, 6 Cubro House, Great Water Street, Longford appeared before Judge Seamus Hughes charged with driving without insurance at Great Water Street, Longford on October 11, 2017.

Outlining the evidence to the court Garda Barron said that on the date in question he discovered that the defendant was driving with no insurance.
“We were attending an apartment block and he drove in off the street,” added the Garda.

The court then heard the defendant held a previous conviction for driving without insurance and Judge Hughes remarked; “He went and drove without insurance again?”.

In mitigation, the defendant’s solicitor John Quinn said that his client had been trying to sell the car at the time and he had been moving it from one place to another when the Gardaí stopped him.

During his deliberations on the matter, Judge Hughes said that he would not disqualify the defendant on this occasion.
“If you are caught driving without insurance again, you will be in trouble,” the Judge warned.

He subsequently convicted the defendant and fined him in respect of the matter.
