A HEREFORD man has been banned from the roads for repeat offending after failing to tell police who was behind the wheel of his BMW.

Vadym Zahariuk was proven guilty of one charge of failing to give information relating to the identification of the driver of a vehicle by magistrates in Cheltenham in February.


The court heard from the prosecutor that the 31-year-old had failed to identify the driver of a BMW, who was alleged to have been guilty of an offence, when required to do so by Gloucestershire Constabulary between May 13 and June 11 last year.

Zahariuk, of Bryngwyn Close, Hereford, was disqualified from holding or obtaining a driving licence for six months, with magistrates saying disqualification was obligatory due to repeat offending.

He was also fined £660 and ordered to pay prosecution costs of £90 and a £66 victim surcharge, which is used to help fund services supporting victims of crime.
