A Markethill man who caused a three car collision after running a red light has been warned that one more offence will see him off the road.
The judge warned the 41-year-old: “You are building up quite a few convictions on your record and the next will see you off the road”.
Sebastian Pieczykolan, of Ashgrove, pleaded guilty to breaching a traffic sign and driving without due care or attention at Craigavon Magistrates’ Court on Friday.
Prosecution outlined that on July 17, police were called to a three vehicle collision on the Northway, Portadown.
Officers arrived to find a Vauxhall Astra with damage to the front, along with a Skoda and an Audi also with damage.
All drivers and an independent witness claimed that the defendant, who had been the driver of the Astra, had gone through a red light collided with the Skoda which in turn hit the Audi.
During a notebook interview, Pieczykolan made full and frank admissions to the offences.
The defendant, who represented himself, claimed he had not seen the red light.
Deputy District Judge Austin Kennedy stated: “You are building up quite a few convictions on your record and the next will see you off the road”.
Pieczykolan was handed three penalty points and ordered to pay a fine of £450, along with the offender’s levy of £15, within 20 weeks.
