A man has been disqualified from driving and fined more than £1,300 after he was convicted of driving offences in Wheatley.
Christopher Stringer, aged 57, of Cullum Road, Wheatley, was convicted in his absence at Oxford Magistrates’ Court of one count of driving otherwise in accordance with a licence and driving without insurance on Thursday (3/11).
He was banned from driving for two years and fined a total of £1,366.
At 4pm on 28 July this year, a vehicle was stopped in Church Road, Wheatley, following information received that the driver did not have a licence or insurance.
The vehicle was subsequently seized under Section 165 of the Road Traffic Act and Stringer was reported for the offences.
The vehicle was not claimed back from the recovery yard, and so it has subsequently been disposed of.
PC Ryan Dollery of Thames Valley Police’s Rural Crime task force, said: “This is another case where officers from our team have caught a driver with no documents whilst on routine patrols.
“Since April 2022, the Rural Crime task force has reported more than 60 motorists for road traffic related offences.
“We will continue to target those who seek to use our roads without appropriate documentation and bring offenders before the courts.”
