SMIDSY driver gets £120 fine

A motorist who was in collision with a cyclist in Soham has admitted driving without due care and attention.

Demba Camara was behind the wheel of a Vauxhall Omega when he came to a halt while turning right into Clay Street from the High Street, stopping in the path of the cyclist.

“My wife said to stop, because there was a cyclist coming,” he told Ely magistrates. “I had not seen the cyclist.”

Camara, 46, of Mill Corner, Soham,
also admitted that he had no licence to drive the car.

The court fined Camara total of £120, four points were endorsed on his licence, and he must pay £85 costs and a £15 surcharge.
