The people who failed to give information to police after being caught speeding in East Lancashire

Eight people have been taken to court and fined in the last two months for failing to provide information to the police after they were allegedly caught speeding on East Lancashire’s roads.

Out of the hundreds of people caught exceeding the speed limits across the region since May 1, only a handful of those failed to provide information relating to the identification of the driver of the vehicle when required to do so.

And out of that handful, just eight were fined for that offence, with all of them either receiving points on their licence or being disqualified from driving.

It must be noted that the offences of speeding in all eight cases were withdrawn.

The names of the eight people who failed to provide information when required are:

1. Michael Graham, 54, of Cleveland Street, Colne

On November 10, having been required by or on behalf of the Chief Officer of Police for Lancashire, he failed to give information relating to the identification of the driver of the vehicle.

He was summonsed to appear in court on June 4, and while the speeding offence was withdrawn, he was disqualified from holding or obtaining a driving licence for six months and his licence endorsed.

He was also ordered to pay a total of £816 including court costs.

2. David Ashworth, 33, of Princess Street, Nelson

On December 5, Ashworth was caught speeding on the M65 near Accrington between junctions seven and eight, but on February 8 of this year, when he was required to provide details relating to the identification of the driver, he failed to do so.
