A WOMAN who was caught speeding seven times by a speed camera was still prosecuted after police tracked her down, despite not updating her address details on her log book and driving licence.
Anna Kolovou, aged 27, of Yenton Grove, Birmingham, was convicted at Cannock Magistrates Court on Friday 16 November for seven separate speeding offences on the A38 northbound between the A453 (Bassetts Pole) and A5.
Kolovou was found to have exceeded the 60mph speed limit on 29 March, 18 April, 19 April, 20 April, 27 April, 2 May and 28 June.
Despite Kolovou’s keeper details and driving licence having an old address, detective work from a speed enforcement officer tracked her down to her workplace in Rugeley where the seven notices of intended prosecution were handed to her personally.
Kolovou was banned on Friday from driving for six months, fined £1540 and a further £125 in court costs.
PC Darren Bussler from Staffordshire Police said: “We have lots of abilities at our disposal to identify and locate offenders, so don’t think you can escape conviction if you decide to drive unsafely. This week is Road Safety Week and we are encouraging road users on both two and four wheels to update their details and to follow the rules of the road to keep you and those around you safe.”
Staffordshire Police is working with partners across the county to educate road users on the perils of driving too fast, driving without insurance and a particular focus on staying safe as a motorcyclist. For more information go to http://www.roadsafetyweek.org.uk/
