Ballymena Court: Man is accused of driving at 102mph

BALLYMENA Magistrates Court has heard a man has been charged with doing a speed of 102mph on the Frosses Road.

David Doey (39), of Ballyweeny Road, Corkey, is accused of dangerous driving on May 15 this year.

A defence lawyer said the intention is to contest the dangerous driving charge but enter a plea of guilty to a reduced charge of excess speed.

He said there was no evidence of “dangerous driving” on the case papers.

District Judge Nigel Broderick noted the speed was 102mph.

The defence lawyer said another man had recently been dealt with at Ballymena Magistrates Court for a speed of 125mph when he had been charged with “simple excess speed”.

David Doey’s case has been adjourned to mid-September.
