Banned motorist is caught driving when she took a spin to collect a washing machine
A banned driver was caught behind the wheel of a Vauxhall Corsa after she had been driving to collect a washing machine.
Chesterfield magistrates’ court heard how Stephanie Kerr, 32, was stopped by police as a suspected banned driver after they carried out an Automatic Number Plate Recognition check on the A619, at Barlborough.
Prosecuting solicitor Becky Allsop told the hearing on June 27: “The defendant was made subject to an 18 month disqualification on April 5, this year, and she was later seen driving on the A619 during an ANPR hit for a disqualified driver.”
Mrs Allsop added: “She said she was driving to Chesterfield from Maltby to collect a washing machine.”
Kerr, of Maple Avenue, Maltby, pleaded guilty to driving while disqualified after the incident on May 27.
