Stephen Kemp, who sped along wrong side of road, fined and given six points on licence
A man who drove on the wrong side of the road while speeding in Watford has been fined £290 and given six points on his licence.
Stephen Kemp, 20, was driving his Fiat along the A412 Rickmansworth Road when he was caught doing 46mph in a 30mph zone.
The car was being driven on the wrong side of the road in the area of the speed camera however it still activated and clocked his illegal speed.
Kemp, of Bridle Lane, Loudwater, claimed he was being pursued by another vehicle. However, he was reported by the Safety Camera Unit in Hertfordshire for speeding and driving without due care which he later admitted in court.
Watford Magistrates’ Court ordered him to pay £290 and put six points on his licence.
PC Bill Owens, from the Safety Camera Unit, said: "It is increasingly common for drivers to be caught driving on the wrong side of the road by speed cameras.
"Maybe they believe they can avoid detection by doing this however this is not true. You will get caught. Not only this, but they are also putting lives at risk by driving so irresponsibly."
