A man who was stopped in Enniskillen driving a car with no insurance has been given penalty points and a fine.

On September 22, 2021, police observed a vehicle on Cornagrade Road, Enniskillen with a check showing there was no insurance in place.

The car was stopped and Nathan Carty (27), with an address of Drumgay Close, Enniskillen was spoken to about this.

During an interview at the scene, Carty admitted he was the owner of the vehicle.

He declined to insure the car at this point and forfeited it instead. A fixed penalty notice was issued but after 52 days it was not paid and a letter was sent to Carty.

Garry Smyth, Carty's solicitor, told the court there was insurance on the car but a missed payment led to it being cancelled and this was accepted.

He said Carty genuinely believed there was insurance in place.

Mr. Smyth added that Carty had sent a payment for the fixed penalty notice but it had been returned and he asked the court to give his client credit for this.

For no insurance and failing to produce his driving licence, Carty was given six penalty points and £375 in fines.
