Wycombe man jailed for speeding ticket scam

Bucks Free Press: Wycombe man jailed for speeding ticket scam Wycombe man jailed for speeding ticket scam

A WYCOMBE man has been jailed for five months for a speeding ticket scam.

Wasim Yasin of Cumbrian Way, High Wycombe was convicted of four counts of making false statements and one count of dangerous driving at Oxford Crown Court on Thursday.

He was sentenced to five months imprisonment for each count - 25 months in total - to run concurrently.

The 22-year-old was also banned from driving for 12 months.

Thames Valley Police said Yasin had been detected speeding by cameras in the High Wycombe area on seven occasions.

The vehicles were not registered to Yasin and, when he was identified by officers, he claimed a fictitious person was behind the wheel.

PC Carl Lewis said: “Yasin thought he could speed with impunity because the vehicles were not registered to him and then, when identified by police, he made a concerted effort to evade the penalties for speeding.

“He started a lie, nominating a fictitious person and maintained that lie until the late stages of the Crown Court process.

“These custodial sentences are a real deterrent to others who insist on trying to evade speeding tickets.”

I'm sure that Yasin is not the only one who does this but catching people is tricky I expect. 5 months which will be halved for good behaviour is not going to stop people

he claimed a fictions person was behind the wheel?????????????

This seems to happen all too often, Glad someone's been sentenced, but no where near long enough and the ban is ridiculous, He should have had an example made of him

Well Done Mr Yasin I agree with what he done and I think he does not deserve the punishment because why should we pay for speeding as we pay insurance, road tax and mot we got so many expenses so why should we pay for speeding. its all pointless if our vehicle has mot and tax why should we drive whatever speed we like as we are paying all these expenses. and also lol we pay road tax just for the roads to have potholes.

Speeding can cause serious injury or death to other road users and pedestrians. I get really sick of people driving really fast with no consideration to the safety of others.
