Dundalk courthouse

A motorist who was clocked speeding at  203kph on the M1 motorway, had just bought the car and “foolishly put his foot down to see how fast it could go” a Defence solicitor told Dundalk district court last week.

Sergeis Kulikovs (19) with an address at Waterville Crescent, Dundalk was originally prosecuted for dangerous driving arising out of the incident at Drumleck on January 24th last where a 120kph limit applies.

Judge John Cheatle accepted an offer of a plea to careless driving and imposed a €250 fine on the defendant who the court was told currently works as a delivery driver.
