Worst driving record, says judge

FORTY-ONE demerit points in just five years and in six months' time this serial road pest will be back on our roads.

It seems Bryce Aaron Dayman just hasn't learned his lesson after he faced the Hervey Bay Magistrates Court this week, charged with driving unlicensed.

Describing the 23-year-old's record as one of the worst he had come across, Magistrate Tom Killeen said he would like to take Dayman off the road for a lot longer. Except he could not.

The court heard Dayman, from Hervey Bay, had been pulled over for a random breath test on July 16 when police told him he had used all his demerit points and would have received a letter in the mail to let him know his licence was suspended for three months.

Magistrate Tom Killeen said Dayman had one of the worst driving records he had ever seen.

“Your traffic history is simply appalling,” Mr Killeen said.

“If you want to be a racing car driver go and get a job as a racing car driver but don't do it on the roads.

“If it was within my power I would keep you off the roads for a couple of years,” he said

Dayman was fined $750 and disqualified from driving for six months.

Yesterday Dayman was back before the court charged with possession of a dangerous drug.

The court heard that when the police impounded his car on the day he lost his licence, they saw him take a small amount of marijuana out of the console and put it in his pocket.

He was fined $300.
