Costly pit stop


A VISIT to the BP Service Station on Peninsula Link at Baxter did not go as planned for a Rosebud man, 8am, Wednesday 1 July.

As Somerville Highway Police watched his black Ford sedan, pictured, drive away their attention was drawn to the car’s blue parking lights.

Pulling him over for a check they found the 25-year-old was driving while his licence was suspended. His car’s rear tyres were found to have less than the required tread depth and he was issued a defect notice.

The man will be summonsed to attend court for driving while suspended and driving an unroadworthy vehicle. The car was impounded for 30 days with a release fee of $1075.
