Uninsured driver, 21, discharged
THE father of a Truro taxi driver took the blame after his son was charged with using a car without insurance – and won him an absolute discharge in court.
Michael Carveth, 21, of Glyn Way, Threemilestone, pleaded guilty to having no insurance on February 12, pleading special reasons. He said the lights had not been working properly on the car that night and he had pulled over to try to repair them.
But when the police spoke to him, a check revealed he was not insured. He said his father had changed over the insurance from a previous car to the present one via the internet, and it was not until after he had been seen by the police that they realised there was a 48-hour delay before the changeover became effective.
The magistrates accepted the special reasons, giving Michael Carveth an absolute discharge on payment of £60 costs.
