Richard Newton was driving at 60mph using his knees to steer when cops caught him on a mobile speed camera. His (rather weak) defence was, “he was only having a stretch” and was this was due to “bad back problems” as he avoided a possible jail sentence today.
What did he receive for this ‘crime’? Newton was banned from the roads for 12 months and was given a 12 month community order including 100 hours of community work.
From my perspective it looks like a very uncompromising position. Perhaps he had a lady friend helping him ‘steer’…
What do you think folks? Does he deserve to be banned from driving for a year? Watch the video below:
