Unlicensed driver challenges charges

A West Bank Demerara (WBD) man late last week denied that he had operated a motorcycle whilst being an unlicenced driver.
Dwane Souvenir of Beauvosin, Canal Number One Polder, WBD appeared at the Wales Magistrate’s Court where he was accused of driving motorcycle CJ 199 at the Parafaite Harmonie, WBD Public Road without a driver’s licence on July 12.
Souvenir, whose listed occupation was given as a welder, denied the offence.
He was also charged with breach of insurance by way of not having a driver’s licence but the Beauvosin resident said that he was not guilty of the charges saying that he was never caught riding the bike.
The WBD man told the court that at the time Police saw him at Parafaite Harmonie, he was pushing the motorcycle.
This was premised on his claim that the vehicle could not start. He was released on his own recognisance and will make his next court on August 31.
