Sutton motorist's ban is reduced after conviction is set aside
2:14pm Thursday 1st November 2012 in News
A Sutton motorist has had a driving ban reduced after magistrates heard a previous conviction had been set aside.
Maciej Klimkiewicz, 33, received a four-month ban from Skipton magistrates last month to run alongside a ban imposed by North Cumbria Magistrates.
But on Friday, magistrates heard the original ban imposed under the totting-up procedure had been set aside.
When he was stopped in Skipton on August 16, he was unaware he had been banned by North Cumbria from driving for six months under the totting-up procedure. He had since returned to court and had the number of points on his licence reduced, no longer making him liable to an automatic ban.
Skipton magistrates set aside a driving-while-disqualified conviction, but imposed a seven-day ban for driving without insurance on the A629 at Skipton.
Klimkiewicz, of High Street, was also fined £45 and ordered to pay a £15 victims surcharge.
