A BIKER has been banned from the roads after he was caught breaking the limit on a busy main road in Herefordshire.

Philip Charles Dufty entered a guilty plea to one count of exceeding a 50 miles per hour speed limit when he appeared before magistrates in Worcester in March.


The court heard from the prosecutor that the 60-year-old had been caught out on manned camera equipment breaking the limit on a Yamaha in a 50 miles per hour zone on the A40 at Pencraig in Herefordshire on July 16.

Hereford Times:

Dufty, of Prestbury Road in Northampton, was fined £622, received six penalty points, and was disqualified from holding or obtaining a driving licence for six months, with magistrates saying a ban was obligatory due to repeat offending.

He was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £110 and a £249 victim surcharge, which is used to help fund services supporting victims of crime.
