Drove on wrong side of road


A woman who drove on the wrong side of the road was fined £125 at Craigavon Magistrates Court last Friday for driving without due care and attention.

Sara Lourenco (31), Churchill Park, Portadown, was also given three points and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy.

The court heard that on January 8 this year police officers were at the Seagoe junction with the Lurgan Road, Portadown.

They saw a vehicle go through the light on the road and they followed it to Bridge Streetin Portadown where it went on the wrong side of the road.

The defendant made the excuse that she did not know the roads and it was dark. Three young children were in the car at the time.
