A speeding driver has been jailed for providing false details to the police in order to dodge paying his speeding fines.

West Yorkshire Police have reported that David Cauchi, aged 57 from Keighley activated speed cameras on three separate occasions.

Bradford Crown Court jailed Cauchi for 12 months. He pleaded guilty to three counts of perverting the course of justice by providing false information on a Notice of Intended Prosecution.

A police spokesman said: "I hope the outcome of this case serves as a warning to anyone who believes they can avoid penalties for speeding. West Yorkshire Police and partners are committed to making our roads safer and we will always investigate those who deliberately attempt to avoid prosecution for road traffic offences."

Bloody ridiculous justice. Woman with 66 points for speeding not only doesn't go to jail, she keeps her licence.

But this wasn't a motoring offence that was being tried. Perverting the course of justice can relate to anything. The courts and judicial system in general take a very dim view, and the sentences serve as a deterrent to lying to the court. Similarly contempt of court can result in a sentence that seems overly harsh.

Yes of course you win.
So is the implication that a habitual speeder who takes no notice of speed limits (over by 30MPH), doesn't pay enough attention to notice a speed limit sign despite passing it multiple times and has accrued 60 odd points (and that's the ones that she has been caught for) shouldn't be at least banned regardless of her extreme hardship to her mobile nail bar or whatever?

Just need to clarify that "Keighley " is pronounced "Keith-Lee" and not "Keeley". Anyone calling it the latter is liable to get chased by a whippet.

So say I am up for shoplifting. I did steal the stuff but I plead innocent and concoct some story and going to pay. I had no money and walked out the shop after covertly putting items into my jacket pocket.

In court I am found not guilty as (say) the shop do not turn up and give evidence. So I walk away again free.

Is that not perverting the course of (in)justice and lying to the court. Laughing Out Loud

Of course it is but that's allowed.

Likewise the assault charge when in court the friend of the charged man said yes I was there. Of course I was there. But I don't remember my mate stabbing the victim. The judge looked an idiot. The jury wasted 2 days. The police/prosecution wasted 100s of hours. And all because the friend pretended he could not remember. So the case had to drop and the clerk to the court merely said "oh well, he will be back again and the judge will remember today".

So the law is an ass.
