Judge suggests banned driver uses Limes

A judge has suggested a suspended driver might use Lime scooters after he was caught breaching his ban.

Farm worker Karandeep Singh (25) appeared in the Dunedin District Court yesterday after being caught driving to work on a moped in Christchurch on December 22.

On October 17 he had been suspended from driving for three months for accruing excess demerit points.

Yesterday, Singh told Judge Michael Turner he had been unsure whether the driving ban included mopeds.

The judge disqualified the defendant from driving for a further six months and had a topical idea regarding the man's transport during that period.

''You could use a Lime scooter. You don't need a licence for that,'' Judge Turner said, or

''you could use a push bike.''

Singh's disqualification will begin tomorrow, when his suspension ends.

The judge opted not to fine the defendant.
