After pleading not guilty last month to one charge of speeding, Ms Irene Greentree appeared in the summary court for trial. However at the start of proceedings she changed her plea to guilty.
Setting out the facts of the case Crown Counsel Stuart Walker said that on the 24th March taxi driver Ms Greentree was driving two fee paying passengers along Ross Road West when a police officer on mobile patrol saw her.
The officer noted that she was driving in excess of 25 miles per hour. Keeping the same distance to her vehicle to monitor her speed, the police officer’s speedometer was reading around 40 -43 miles per hour.
When the police officer pulled Ms Greentree over she said that she did not know how fast she was driving but stated that it was “too fast.”
She was given a fine of £190, was disqualified from driving for 14 days, her license was endorsed and she was ordered to pay court costs of £200.
