Coventry girl disqualified from driving after ignoring tickets

A COVENTRY girl has been disqualified from driving after failing to respond to a speeding ticket.

Brijal Mardania, 19, from Leamington Road was sentenced at magistrates court on June, 18 where she was disqualified from driving for two years and fined £1,980.

She was also ordered to pay £792 victim surcharge and £110 costs.

The sentence relates to three charges of Failing to Provide Driver Details after Warwickshire Road Safety Unit received no response to any of the speeding tickets known as Notices of Intended Prosecution sent to her.

She failed to show up to court on March 5 and the case was adjourned for sentencing.

The three speeding offences were committed between April, 16 and April, 23 2023 with two offences committed on the M6 (Junction 3A) and one offence on the A46.




Speaking after the case, Senior Caseworker Alex Barrett-Evans said: “Whilst the majority of law-abiding people engage with our correspondence to reach an appropriate outcome for the speeding offence, not all drivers are compliant.

“This includes Brijal who showed total disrespect for the legal system and her sentence reflects this.


“Checks conducted at the time of the trial, showed that she was already disqualified until April, 16 2025 for a previous offence of Failing to Provide Driver Details.

“The court did not take this lightly, and as well as fines and fees amounting to almost £3000, she was disqualified again for a further two years.

“We hope that she takes heed of this hefty sentence given to her by the court and chooses to take responsibility for her actions and change her ways.”
