DUI and speeding are some of the most selfish crimes committed.
Not only are you taking your life into your own hands, you’re putting everyone else on the road at risk.
Here we look at the South Essex drivers who have been convicted of road crimes over the past few months.
Robert Stephen Amos pleaded guilty to driving above the alcohol limit in Southend Magistrate’s Court on November 21.
A 32-year-old man was found driving a Vauxhall Vectra at Fullerton Crescent, South Ockendon while exceeding the legal limit with 58 micrograms of alcohol per 100 milliliters of breath.
Amos, who lives in Cherwell Grove, South Ockendon, was fined £120 and ordered to pay a £34 surcharge.
He was also disqualified from holding or obtaining a driver’s license for 16 months.
Wesley Gray was convicted of driving over the speed limit at 40 miles per hour (40 mph) on the eastbound A13 bypass near Stanford-le-Hope on January 19.
The 44-year-old was fined £220 in the same court on 11 November.
He was ordered to pay a surcharge of £34 to fund victim services and £620 in costs to the Royal Public Prosecutor’s Office.
Gray of Gainsborough Avenue in Tilbury was also slapped three points on his license.
