Oliver James Hill (20) of Kilbride Road was caught speeding in a 70mph zone on Fross Road near Ballymena at 10.15pm on April 16 this year.

Ballymena Magistrates’ Court heard the defendant was in a ‘Volkswagen Golf R’ which the prosecutor said was a ‘quite powerful car’.

The lawyer said that there was “absolutely no excuse for the speed”.

He added: “It would be too fast even for someone who has been driving for a significant period of time.”

District Judge Nigel Broderick said this was “a very high speed for anyone, let alone a driver on probation”.

The court found that the defendant “sold the car”
