Hervey Bay magistrate reduces traffic fine for schoolboy

A SCHOOL student had his fine for traffic offences reduced in Hervey Bay Magistrates Court on Wednesday.

Brock Michael Stevens, 17, pleaded guilty to driving an uninsured, unregistered vehicle without a licence.

The three offences occurred on April 26 in Eli Waters.

Magistrate Graeme Tatnell was set to impose a fine of more than $1000 when he found out Stevens was still at high school and unemployed.

"How are you going to pay a fine, then?" Mr Tatnell asked.

Mr Tatnell reduced the fine to $750, and also ordered a licence disqualification of three months.
