A six month driving ban was imposed on a Portadown man last Wednesday at Craigavon Magistrates Court.
Jamie Christopher Reid (29), Churchill Park, Portadown, was also fined £400 for not having insurance and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy.
The court heard the offence came to light when he was stopped at a vehicle checkpoint on the Dobbin Road, Portadown, on March 24.
He told police: “I have to get it.”
A fixed penalty was offered but this was not paid.
District Judge, Mrs Bernie Kelly, recorded a conviction against the defendant.
