AN NHS worker caught speeding in Herefordshire has escaped a roads ban due to the effect it would have on her colleagues and service users.

Sian Domi appeared before magistrates in Worcester in January after entering a guilty plea to one count of exceeding a 30 miles per hour speed limit.

Hereford Times:

The court heard that the 51-year-old had been caught breaking the limit behind the wheel of a Toyota in a 30 miles per hour zone on the A40 at Hildersley near Ross-on-Wye in Herefordshire on May 1.


She had been clocked speeding on manually operated equipment, the court was told.

Domi, who is of Park Crescent in Abergavenny, was fined £269 and received three penalty points. She was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £110 and a £34 victim surcharge.

No totting disqualification was made for the NHS worker because, magistrates said, a ban would cause the loss of her job and have a negative impact on her employer, service users, other employees, and community.
