Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner prosecuted for speeding
THE deputy Police and Crime Commissioner for Humberside has been prosecuted for speeding.
Paul Robinson was driving at 90mph when he was stopped by a member of Humberside Police, and has been fined and had points added to his driving licence for the offence this week. He has now vowed to give more attention to his driving.
Mr Robinson was caught speeding on the M180 in North Lincolnshire on Thursday, September 19, by a patrolling officer, and today released a statement about his prosecution.
He said: “I admitted the offence and he reported me for prosecution. I have now received a fixed penalty notice carrying a £100 fine and three penalty points. I have paid the fine and sent my otherwise clean licence for endorsement.
“This is the second occasion this year when I have committed a driving offence. It is clear to me I need to give greater attention to my driving and the fine and penalty points will serve as a reminder to me that I have broken the law and been punished for it.”
Matthew Grove, Police and Crime Commissioner for Humberside, said: “Paul tells me he has admitted the offence and accepts the punishment he has been given. He has told me that he intends to drive with the utmost care in the future.”
