Why didn't you listen to your mum, magistrate asks
NOT listening to the advice of his mother has cost Maryborough's Corey Dennis McCutcheon $1700.
The Maryborough Magistrates Court heard McCutcheon's mum had been nagging him for weeks not to ride his unregistered motorbike on the road before police caught him in the act on Ambrose-White St on July 4.
But not only was the motorbike unregistered, McCutcheon didn't have a motorbike licence, he wasn't wearing a helmet and he was sprung riding on the wrong side of the road.
"Why didn't you listen to your mum?" Magistrate John Smith asked.
McCutcheon pleaded guilty to all five charges - unlicensed driving, driving an unregistered vehicle, driving an uninsured vehicle, failure to wear a helmet and driving on the wrong side of the road.
He was disqualified from holding a licence for six months.
His mother attended court with him and told Magistrate John Smith her son hadn't taken his medication that morning.
