However, when he arrived at the station, the woman agreed to pay and she then asked him to return her to her home.In all the taxi-driver was captured by the speed van doing 76kph, 79kph, 71kph and 79kph – all in a 60kph zone on May 3rd last.Judge Paul Kelly asked solicitor Gordon Curley how his client could not see the speed van, which was parked at Glenfin Road, Ballybofey on FOUR different occasions.Mr Curley said he simply could not explain the situation.“Judge Kelly said “He seems to have a habit of speeding. I just find it astounding (that he did not see speed camera van).”Nwadike had paid for two of the fines but said he did not receive summons for the other two speeding offences.Passing sentence, Judge Kelly said that this was Mr Nwadike’s lucky day as he faced losing his driving license if found guilty.He dismisssed both remaining charges.“It’s your lucky day. Make sure you don’t get any more (speeding charges),” said Judge Kelly.TAXI DRIVER CAUGHT FOUR TIMES BY SPEED VAN IN LESS THAN AN HOUR was last modified: January 7th, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
