A motorcyclist caught speeding 84mph in a 30mph zone has been jailed for 18 weeks after trying to avoid the speeding offence by claiming he had sold his bike. Keith Darch, from Abergele, Conwy, admitted perverting the court of justice.
North Wales Police sent the biker a Section 172 form asking who had been riding the bike at the time of the alleged offence. Darch, the registered keeper, returned the form claiming someone else was the rider and claimed he had sold the bike around the time of the alleged offence.
Darch later admitted in court that he was the driver at the time.
