Balls has admitted going too far too fast, spoiling a certain Sunday story in a blogpost this lunchtime:
“Like many local people, I was caught out by the never-ending roadworks on the M62. Pulling on to the motorway at Morley I realised too late that the speed restrictions were still in place. I was caught and bang to rights – doing 56 in a 50 mile restriction zone. Going too far, too fast, you might say.
I paid my fine and chose to attend a speed awareness course. I currently have no points on my licence and would like to keep it that way. Which is why, this week, I ended up in the Holiday Inn with 39 others.
The course was very professional and actually really worthwhile.”
The second time he has been done for a driving offence. At least he didn’t get Yvette to take the points…
