A Loughgiel man has been given three penalty points and a £75 for doing 55mph in a Large Goods Vehicle which was restricted to a speed of 40mph on the Frosses Road near Ballymoney.

Seamus Aloysius McGarry (55), of Corkey Road, had the offence detected in February this year.

Defence barrister Michael Smyth told Coleraine Magistrates Court on Monday June 11 the defendant was sent a fixed penalty notice with the right name but the wrong date and time.

Mr Smyth said the defendant intended to “take instructions” on the matter but forget about and then a summons was issued in the wrong name and his client had “not tried to evade the summons”.

The defendant was given three penalty points and fined £75 for the speeding offence.
