County Antrim motorway driver had defective brakes and excessive diesel leak on BMW

POLICE stopped a BMW on the M22 motorway and defective brakes and an excessive diesel leak were found.

Darren Kincaid (22), of Roguery Road near Toomebridge, admitted charges including failing to maintain the vehicle and absence of MOT.

Defence solicitor Andrew Kinney told Antrim Magistrates Court, sitting in Ballymena, the car was MOT'd four days later after the defendant spent £1,000 to fix it up.

Deputy District Judge Trevor Browne issued fines totaling £400 and said the defendant, who had a previous record, had a "very casual approach to motoring legislation".
