A HEREFORDSHIRE man has been fined by magistrates after driving without due care and attention on a busy main road.

Jonathan Weaver entered a guilty plea to one count of driving a mechanically propelled vehicle on a road or public place without due care and attention when he appeared before magistrates in Worcester in February, after entering a not guilty plea at a previous hearing.


The court heard from prosecutor Sara Hurd that the 35-year-old had driven a Ford Focus without due care and attention on the A465 in Hereford without due care and attention on February 18.

Weaver, of Porthouse Rise in Bromyard, Herefordshire, was fined £80 and received six penalty points for the offence, with magistrates saying they had taken his guilty plea into account when deciding on the penalty.

No order for prosecution costs was made due to his lack of means, but Weaver was ordered to pay a £34 victim surcharge, which is used to help fund services supporting victims of crime.
