Teen banned from driving his first car

A TEENAGER who was driving home in his first car which he'd just bought has been put off the road for six months as he didn't have any insurance.

Lee Crosby (19) of Clanmaurice Rd, Donnycarney said he saw the car on a website, and was so anxious to get it that he didn't have time to sort out the insurance.

He said he planned to drive the car to his house and then buy the insurance -- but he was stopped by gardai as he made his way home to Donnycarney.

A judge in Dublin District Court fined him €500 and gave him a six-month driving ban.
