Boyfriend permitted to drive her car

A Lurgan woman was fined £150 last Wednesday at Craigavon Magistrates Court for permitting her boyfriend to drive her car without having insurance.

Siobhan McMahon (22) Drumlin Drive, Lurgan, was also given six points and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy.

The court heard police stopped the car at 7.55pm and the defendant’s boyfriend was driving. She said she had been drinking at a bar and had permitted him to drive the vehicle.

Defence said she accepted she should not have given him permission to drive the vehicle.
