A CAR belonging to persistent offender David Bowers has been confiscated and could end up in the crusher, he was told this week.
Police had already impounded the Rover 414 that disqualified driver Bowers was driving on November 3.
And on Tuesday Fenland magistrates made a deprivation order on the car, making sure it cannot be returned to him. They also gave Bowers a suspended four-month jail sentence and ordered him to carry out 150 hours of unpaid community work.
Bowers, 23, of Post Office Lane, Wisbech, had admitted his fifth offence of driving while disqualified. He further admitted driving without insurance in
Clarkson Avenue, Wisbech, in November.
Mitigating, solicitor Anita Waterman said Bowers had been genuinely confused about the driving ban. He had been unaware he was disqualified until he took a test.
