Young woman drives uninsured car along footpath near children

Laura Kearns 14th Dec, 2016

A YOUNG woman was caught driving an uninsured car along a footpath in Meon Vale which was being used by children.

Police were called to the area on Sunday (December 11) to reports of a Renault Clio being driven erratically around the estate.

After speaking to residents and checking CCTV they discovered the car parked nearby and a woman from Lower Quinton was identified as the driver.

She could now lose her licence after only passing her test at the start of the year.

A police spokesman said: “With the driver only passing her test at the beginning of 2016 the ‘New Driver Rules’ will be of concern to her – a driving licence will be revoked if you get six or more points within two years of passing your test.

“The offence of driving without valid insurance carries a six point penalty with £300 fine.”
