Costly driving ‘display'

A BRACKER Rd motorist was driving so recklessly one afternoon, an off-duty police officer thought the vehicle in question would flip over.

Craig Paul Lambert was observed by the policeman to exceed the speed limit and veer off the road temporarily before stopping in the middle of the intersection and complete a 180 degree turn.

The Warwick Magistrates Court this week heard Lambert then lost control of the vehicle, before fishtailing and coming close to flipping.

The car finally rolled to a stop and Lambert quickly exited the vehicle to check his tryres for damage.

When all was clear, the lead-footed Lambert got back into his car and left the scene.

The officer who observed the reckless driving said Lambert appeared to be laughing as he drove off after the April 14 display.

Defence counsel for Lambert told the court his client was trying to find a friend's house and got lost.

The 30-year-old was fined $750 and was disqualified from driving for three months.
