Disqualified driver loses job

car_photo_519835A SWANSEA man has been found guilty of driving whilst disqualified and driving without insurance at Haverfordwest Magistrates Court on Wednesday.
Paul Gibbs of Mansel Road, Bonymaen, was working as a courier for Yodel at the time but was stopped by Police in Pembroke Dock who informed Gibbs that he was disqualified and shouldn’t be driving.
At the time of the offence, Paul thought he only had three points on his licence but it was found that he had actually got six.
He lost his job as a result and has suffered financially since. He is currently on jobseekers allowance and hopes to return to work in a similar role to what he had been doing.
Gibbs said that he had no communication about his offence but the magistrates could not accept this fact.
After considering the evidence and the circumstances, Gibbs was given a 12-month community order and ordered to do 100 hours of unpaid work.
His licence was also endorsed with six points and he was given a total fine of Ł145.
