A DRIVER caught out on a busy main road in a dangerous car has been fined hundreds by magistrates.

Dwaine William Roberts was proven guilty of one count of using a motor vehicle or trailer in a condition likely to cause a danger of injury by magistrates in Worcester in August.


The court heard from the prosecutor that the 38-year-old had been caught out while behind the wheel of a Citroen on the A456 at Burford, Tenbury Wells, on February 10.

The car was in such a dangerous condition that its use involved a danger of injury to other people, the court was told.

Roberts, of Ryelands Road, Leominster, was fined £440 and received three penalty points for the offence.

He was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £90 and a £176 victim surcharge, which is used to help fund services supporting victims of crime.
