A DANGEROUS driver who cruised the roads without a licence or insurance has been made to carry out 100 hours of unpaid work.

Stephen McMillian, of Galingale Close, Bicester, was spotted driving ‘erratically’ by police officers at 11pm on July 9.

When they tried to stop him, he raced away at speed.

Officers found him shortly after and he was arrested but when he got to the station he refused to be breathalysed.

The 27-year-old appeared in the dock of Oxford Magistrates’ Court on Friday and admitted:

  • failing to stop for the police
  • failing to provide a specimen of breath for analysis
  • driving without a licence and
  • driving without insurance.

As a result he was:

  • disqualified from driving for a year and six months
  • ordered to carry out 100 hours of unpaid work in the next year
  • made to pay a victim surcharge and court costs

His car was also seized under Section 165 of the Road Traffic Act.

Investigating officer, PC Christopher Guttridge, said: “McMillan did not give any consideration to any other road user in his behaviour. Not only does he not hold a valid driving license, he was also not insured.

“The manner of his driving was dangerous and showed how intent he was to evade police and conviction. Fortunately he was arrested without any harm to any other road users.

“His car was later seized under section 165 of the Road Traffic Act.

“I hope this serves as an example that we take these offences seriously and will work hard to bring offenders to justice.”
