Totting-up ban for Scunthorpe driver caught speeding twice in town on same day
A DRIVER told magistrates he never wanted to drive in this country again after being caught speeding twice in the same day.
Polish man Wojciech Poninski, 25, of Cottage Beck Road, Scunthorpe, was banned from driving for six months under the totting-up procedure, which counts up speeding points.
At 10.38am on June 6, he was caught travelling at 36mph on Ashby Road in Scunthorpe, an area with a 30mph limit.
Just two hours later he was caught travelling at 54mph on Queensway in Scunthorpe, where there is a 40mph limit.
He said he could offer no explanation as to why he was caught speeding and that being disqualified would pose him no problems.
Poninski, who already had six points on his driving licence, was given three points for each of the offences and was therefore disqualified.
Poninski, who works in manufacturing, was ordered to pay fines of £225, costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £15.
