Fine for man who overtook roads open car

Biker handed himself in to police

A UK man who overtook the roads open car on his motorbike this week is warning other riders to be careful after he was prosecuted at Douglas Courthouse.

44 year old Jason Horn of Blurton in Stoke-on-Trent admitted riding on closed roads and was fined £400 with costs of £50 by magistrates.

The court heard he'd handed himself in to police after an appeal social media, and hadn’t realised what the roads open car was.

After his conviction, he told Manx Radio he felt lucky not to have been jailed.
