Two had licences revoked for speeding

Two people who appeared in the District ‘A’ Traffic Court this week on separate charges had their licences suspended for a year.

Ondre Waithe of #1 Harvester Close, Marchfeild, St Philip pleaded guilty before Magistrate Graveney Bannister to exceeding the speed limit of 80 kilometres per hour and driving at a speed of 105 kilometres per hour on the Barrow Section of the ABC Highway on January 30, 2016.

“I did not know that I was doing that kind of speed, Sir,” Waite told the magistrate.

He also admitted to driving on the same road at 155 kilometers per hour on March 6, last year.

Waithe was fined $1,000 forthwith for each of the offences, which carried an alternative of a hundred days in prison. He was also disqualified from driving for a period of 12 months. If he breaches the order he will spend six months at HMP Dodds.

In the other case Sasha Williams of Stanmore Terrace, Black Rock, St Michael was also disqualified from driving for the same period of time.

She admitted to driving on the Barrow section of the ABC Highway at 155 kilometers per hour.

Williams was also fined $1,000, which she had to pay forthwith if she wanted to avoid spending 100 days in jail.

In both cases the fines were paid.

    This is the right way for the government get some revenue in and take mindless people off the roads same time . Suppose even I’d rather see the efforts going into the speed instead of weed .

    All this is what our politicians causes ,we need cheap technology and proper road management, speed limits , speed cameras not policemen standing on the corner with piece of paper in hand….
    Must add ,research in the (UK) , and continental Europe shows a high percent of ban drivers ,still go out an commit the same offence, these are countries with up to date technologies…………
    Its okay to have laws but enforcement is the challenge………….

    This needed to be done a long long time ago. And big up people need to face the courts like the small man. When some get report most say it will go no where. Not right at all. This must stop .

    This was too excessive it should be one or the other. Sometimes you driving and depending on the car you gone over the speed limit and you don’t even realized it. Who happy about this when it happens to you or a family member who is the breadwinner of a house whose job is driving,hope you all would still be rejoicing.

      “Sometimes you driving and depending on the car you gone over the speed limit and you don’t even realized it”…Really?? That’s just stupid. 155km is almost twice the speed limit. Which needless to say is the only thing in this cause that was too excessive, where the hell could anyone have to go in barbados that they need to drive at 155km. If these or any other person are the “breadwinner” of a house then they should act and be responsible enough to know this and not do anything to make life harder. The problem with us people is we like to make too much excuses before we deal with the issues. If one of these people driving at 155km for no good reason had lost control and hit and killed or injured one of your family members or loves one’s…”would you still be saying the courts ruling was TOO excessive”??

      People does talk George but when you got things on your mind that are stressing you out ,a lot of things can and does cloud your judgment buddy. 155 is nothing to compare to if you can’t remember if you turned off your stove, or you unplugged your iron in your house. We does be quickly to judge until we are place in the same scenarios. And again it was too excessive in these hard economic times.

    It is funny down right hilarious that after all the road fatalities these unfortunate two make news. Really, really how many hit and runs children knocked down some dead where all these drivers involved Driving Miss Daisy.

    Taurus you are talking crap. There is no way you can be doing 155 kph and not know that you are over an 80 kph limit.

    Perhaps if one of these two idiots had killed one of YOUR family members then you would be singing a different tune.

    And you are telling me that people on the road driving about with stress and doing 155 without thinking. And then you have the to compare it with leaving a stove or iron on. Are you serious?

    When you leave your stove on that’s at you you burn down your own house not take out innocent people with your recklessness.

    Take your argument to the family of the police officer who died in that accident recently.

    Taurus you really need to think.

    Too many vehicles on the road with no brake lights, no rear view mirrors, bald tires along with serious black or white smoke coming from the tail pipe exhaust.
    Persons driving at that kind of speed (105k) should have their licence taken away for 3 years.

    155…….to hit at that speed, to hit another vehicle at that speed. 155 and only 1,000.00 155 and only a year suspension. laws want a look at given the society we got now. I suggest 5,000.00 and two years suspension. if you grumble bout de fines and de suspension then I want jail time 3 months and it being used by the judges.

    The judge was excessive and lets face it in this day and age is 80 km sufficient some parts of the highway are still 60 km. 90km seems more reasonable on all highway roads.

    Ridiculous?……Where is the reservation for lateness or emergencies?

    People should check accident stats and see when, where and how accidents are occurring.

    Barbados society always concentrates on the wrong thing.
