Motorist on phone
A motorist has been given three penalty points on his driving licence and fined £80 after using a mobile phone while behind the wheel of a car.
James Melrose Frith, 36, of Church Road, Molescroft used a mobile phone while driving a black Land Rover Defender on the A164 at Hutton Cranswick on the afternoon of May 17.
Frith pleaded guilty to a charge of using a handheld mobile phone while driving a motor vehicle on a road when the case was brought before magistrates in Bridlington last Wednesday. Frith was not present for the court hearing but submitted his plea in writing.
The court heard that at 12.16pm on May 17 a police officer in an unmarked vehicle was travelling along the A164 in the direction of Beverley when he saw a black Land Rover Defender towing an agricultural vehicle being driven by a man who was talking on a mobile phone.
The court heard that Frith had a full clean driving licence and worked at Slip Stream Fashion, in Beverley.
Frith was also ordered to pay court costs of £40 and a £15 victim surcharge.
