Couple fined after boyfriend drove car

Have your say

A MAN who admitted driving his girlfriend’s car with no licence or insurance was fined by Grantham magistrates and given six penalty points.

Wesley Dabrowski, 29, of The Grove, Grantham, was stopped by police in Inner Street, Grantham, on February 1.

His girlfriend Sarah Taylor, of the same address, admitted two charges of permitting him to use the car without a licence or insurance.

Defending Taylor, Andrew Coley said: “It’s been a costly mistake for her because her car was seized by police. They charge an exorbitant fee to release it. It’s about £200.

“She’s unable to get it back from the police at this time because she doesn’t have the funds.”

Dabrowski was disqualified from driving in 2004 and never re-applied for a licence.

Bill Fraser, defending, said: “He took a stupid risk and unfortunately caused problems for his girlfriend as well, which she didn’t appreciate at the time.”

Both defendants were fined £110, given six penalty points, and made to pay £85 costs and £15 victim surcharge.

Dabrowski was also charged with burgling a house in Denton on January 25. He denied the charge. He will appear on May 25 for committal to crown court.
