Callum Anthony David White, aged 23 and of Knyveton Road, Bournemouth, was sentenced at Poole Magistrates’ Court on Monday 30 November 2020 to a total of 18 weeks in prison after admitting driving whilst disqualified, driving without valid insurance and fraudulently using a registration mark.
At around 5.20pm on Monday 16 March 2020, an officer from Dorset Police’s No Excuse team, who was off duty, saw White on his white Yamaha motorcycle at a set of traffic lights in Wimborne Road in the Kinson area of Bournemouth.
The officer recognised the driver as White, who had been disqualified from driving for 12 months in August 2019 for motoring offences and was given a prison sentence of 12 weeks, suspended for 12 months.
As the motorcycle set off from the traffic lights, the officer saw it was not displaying a visible registration mark.
Following enquiries, officers located White in Christchurch Road in Bournemouth, where he was arrested and his motorcycle was seized.
Police constable Neil Wallis, of the No Excuse team, said: “Callum White was the subject of a suspended sentence and knew he faced going to prison if he flouted his ban, but he still decided to get on his motorcycle and take to the road.
“I am pleased that we were able to catch him in the act so he could face the consequences of his actions.”
