A forklift driver, who was estimated to be travelling at 60mph in a 40mph zone, has had his licence endorsed with four penalty points.

The case of Marius Alexsandravicius, (40), of Clendinning Way, Portadown, was heard at Craigavon Courthouse sitting on Wednesday, January 5.

The court heard that on June 16 last year, mobile patrol officers on the Dungannon Road, Portadown, believed that the defendant was using excess speed and they had to do 60mph in a 40mph zone to catch up with him.

Philip Reid, who was defending Alexsandravicius, outlined that his client initially pleaded not guilty as he believed he was doing closer to 50mph than 60mph but he still admits he was in the wrong. It was explained that the defendant was heading to work that morning and that he has three live points on his licence.

District Judge Greg McCourt imposed a £125 fine and endorsed the defendant’s licence with four penalty points for the offence.
