Oz Day ‘joyride’ costs disqualified driver
A disqualified driver told police he was going for a “joyride” when they busted him at Yeppoon on Australia Day.
Tyler Thomas Bernard Worley, 19, pleaded guilty in Yeppoon Magistrates Court last Thursday to driving while demerit point disqualified.
The court heard police intercepted Worley driving on Yeppoon Rd at 3.30pm on January 26.
Worley told police he was aware he was unlicensed and was “out for a joyride.”
Worley’s appearance in the Yeppoon court last Thursday was his second in a matter of weeks.
Last Thursday Magistrate Philippa Beckinsale told Worley he was going to receive another disqualification that would go on top of what he copped in January.
She fined him $450 and disqualified him from driving for six months.
