Man drove at 100mph on the A1 carriageway


A 34-year-old man who drove at 100mph on the A1 dual carriageway has been asked to attend in person at Banbridge Magistrates Court.

David Boston, Hillhead Drive, Ballyvally, Banbridge, admitted, by letter at last Thursday’s court, a speeding offence.

A prosecutor said that on April 7 this year Boston was detected travelling at 100mph in a 70mph zone on the A1.

District Judge, Mr Paul Copeland, adjourned the case until June 16. He said that an adjournment notice should be sent to the defendant requesting him to attend at court.
