Have your say

A DISQUALIFIED driver was days away from the end of his three-year driving ban when he got behind the wheel of a vehicle and decided to drive.

Manase Motaung, 29, was pulled over by police while driving up to 100mph on the A1 at Grantham.

To compound his situation, he then gave officers a false name.

Motaung admitted driving whilst disqualified, driving without insurance, obstructing a constable and speeding.

Motaung was given an eight-week prison sentence, suspended for 12 months.

He was banned from driving for a further 12 months and ordered to carry out 250 hours’ community service.
