A SPEEDER has been banned from the roads after he was caught breaking the limit in a goods vehicle in Herefordshire.

Grant Ratibb appeared before magistrates in Worcester for sentencing in May after entering a guilty plea to one count of exceeding the speed limit for a goods vehicle at an earlier hearing.


The court heard from the prosecutor that the 51-year-old had been caught breaking the limit while behind the wheel of a Ford in a 60 miles per hour zone on the A40 at Ganarew in Herefordshire on August 9.

Ratibb, of Baveney Road in Worcester, was fined £153, received three penalty points, and was disqualified from driving 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 £61 victim surcharge, which is used to help fund services supporting victims of crime.
