However, he never paid the fine – because he claimed the summons was sent to the wrong address.On the 22nd of May, 2015, Garda Martin Gallagher observed Mr Nash driving dangerously and pulled him over.Garda Gallagher told the court, “I observed a motor vehicle overtake a second vehicle in front of me going round a corner.“The manoeuvre also took place on a continuous white line, and I then indicated for the vehicle to pull over.“I asked for the driver of the vehicle for his license, but he didn’t have it on him, I then asked for his name and address.“He told me his name was Malcom Nash, and that he lived at 67 Cluain Na Rí, Ballina, Co. Mayo.“However, there was no payment made on the fine issued.The defendant was then asked to take the stand and give evidence.Mr Nash told the court, “I don’t think it’s possible that I would’ve given the wrong address, as I lived at that residence for over ten years!“I can’t see how an error was made, I definitely told him I lived at 66 Cluain Na Rí.“He was very, very fair with me on the day, and I wouldn’t have given him the wrong address.”When asked did he receive the summons – he said he did not as he didn’t have a very good relationship with his neighbours.“Communication wouldn’t be great, I don’t want to be talking bad about my neighbours, but I wouldn’t have must interaction with the, I’d know them to see that’s all.”Judge Paul Kelly struck out the fine and dismissed the case.MAN CLEARED OF DANGEROUS DRIVING AFTER SUMMONS SENT TO WRONG ADDRESS was last modified: December 17th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:courtsdangerous drivingfineMalcolm NashMayonewssummonslast_img read more
