A DANGEROUS driver caught out at a Herefordshire garage has been handed a suspended prison sentence and ordered to pay hundreds in compensation.

Carter Taylor entered a guilty plea to one count of driving a vehicle dangerously when he appeared before magistrates.

He was committed to Worcester Crown Court for sentencing, and last month was sentenced to 10 months in prison, suspended for 12 months. He must also complete 20 days of rehabilitation activities, 150 hours of unpaid work, and has been banned from driving for 12 months with an extended re-test required.


He was ordered to pay £840 in compensation to a victim.

The court heard from the prosecutor that Taylor had been caught out at Whitney-on-Wye petrol station, driving dangerously in the forecourt on March 23 last year.

The 25-year-old, of Whitney-on-Wye, initially appeared at Hereford Magistrates' Court in March before being sent on to the crown court in Worcester due to the severity of the offence. He was sentenced in April.
