A Ballymena man has admitted a number of vehicle offences.
Thomas Alexander Galbraith (27), of Chichester Park West, pleaded guilty to using a vehicle with front headlights which were non-standard and fitted with ‘high intensity discharge’ lamps’.
He also admits using front and rear lights which were being ‘illuminated orange’; keeping a Volkswagen Passat on the road without a number plate and having a defective tyre.
The case was mentioned at Ballymena Magistrates Court on Thursday December 27 where a defence solicitor said the defendant suffered from a condition which meant he “can’t come into the building”.
Meanwhile, the defendant has pleaded not guilty to charges of having front driver and passenger door windows with ‘visual transmission for light of less than the percentage required’; having an incorrect registration mark; having rear lights ‘coated with a tinted solution’; using a vehicle in a dangerous condition because of the suspension and braking system and having a defective exhaust system.
The case was adjourned to January 17 to fix a date for a contest.
