A motorist has been sentenced after his car collided with a pedestrian at Tesco Extra in Royston.
The case involving Neil Holson, of Parklands, concluded in his absence at Stevenage Magistrates' Court on Thursday last week.
The court heard that on November 4 last year, Holson drove his Honda Jazz to the petrol station at Tesco Extra in Old North Road. When he attempted to exit the station forecourt, his car collided with a pedestrian and caused injury.
He was charged with driving without due care and attention, contrary to the Road Traffic Act 1988 and Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988.
Holson pleaded guilty on May 20, 2021, and on Thursday, the chairman of the bench - Magistrate Stephen Cane - fined him £120 and endorsed his licence with six points.
