A banned driver stopped on the A1 at Colsterworth narrowly avoided a jail sentence.
Milton Munyiri (23) of Tower Court, Peterborough, admitted driving whilst disqualified after being stopped on March 13.
He was sentenced to a suspended prison sentence of four months. He must also complete 150 hours of unpaid work and pay £85 in costs.
Chair of magistrates Mr Gordon said: “You would have gone to prison if not for your early guilty plea.”
