In addition to having his driving licence disqualified for 12 months, Frederick J.T. Taylor, of Council-Houses, Wickhamford, summoned for driving a motor-cycle without a Road Fund licence and a certificate of insurance, was fined a total of £2 10s. at Evesham County Petty Sessions to-day.

His licence was endorsed.

P.C. Haines, of Badsey, told the court that at 12.5 a.m. on April 22 at Wickhamford he saw defendant approaching on a motor-cycle and signalled him to stop. He did not do so, but pulled up further up the road and pushed the machine into his garden.

Witness said he went to the house and saw defendant who denied that he used the machine. He was unable to produce a Road Fund licence or a certificate of insurance.

Defendant, in his defence, said that he had applied for insurance, but it had apparently been delayed in the post. He could not get the machine taxed because he had not had the insurance through.

He was fined £1 for having no licence and £1 10s. for having no certificate of insurance.
