Driver changed number plates to avoid speeding fine

A Peterlee motorist claimed his car had been cloned after switching his registration in a desperate attempt to dodge a speeding charge.

41 year-old Trevor Davies was caught driving at 50mph hour in 40mph zone, but created a web of lies to avoid paying the lb80 fine.

After first telling police that his BMW was off the road, Davies bought a new set of number plates to attach to his vehicle. After photographing the new registrations he claimed his car had been cloned.

Police found after a lengthy investigation that the vehicle was seen with its original plates leading up to the offence. The car was not seen again until four days later, this time sporting the new plates.

Davies admitted to Teesside Crowd Court that he had lied in an act intended to pervert the course of justice.

He was given fours months prison suspended for 12 months and ordered to pay lb2,500 in legal costs following the guilty plea.

Davies will also receive three points on his liscence for the speeding offence.

Sergeant Martin Atwell said this serves as a warning to those trying to avoid justice.

“Trevor Davies told a web of lies in an attempt to evade justice. The offence was fully investigated and officers saw through his deceit,” Sgt Atwell said.

“Cleveland Police take speeding extremely seriously and we will continue to ensure that our roads are as safe as possible for all road users.”

Many valuable items, including watches, jewellery and a TV, have been retrieved from an abandoned vehicle.

The car was found earlier in March in Rainham, itself having already been stolen.

The grey Ford Kuga was taken from a property in Essex in early February after the thieves had broke into the house.

Essex police believe the vehicle to be connected to numerous burglaries in the area, using false number plates to stay under the radar.

Photographs of the discovered items (above) have now been released to the public, urging the rightful owners to come forward.

Motorists are urged to avoid third-party companies offering DVLA services are inflated costs.

The warning comes following reports of unsolicited text messages reminding drivers that their license is coming up for renewal.

The companies aim to mislead customers into renewing through them, charging them additional fees and surcharges.

Some of these companies even act illegally, saying they are associated with the DVLA.

The Driver & Vehicle Licensing Agency have confirmed that they are in no way involved with any of the offending companies and urge drivers to always use the GOV.UK website.
