Mother 'who drives how she likes' gets a jail warning

By Ashleigh McDonald

A mother-of-five who "believes she can do whatever she likes on the road" was warned yesterday that she faces jail if she commits further motoring offences.

Tracey Clarke, from Abbeycroft Drive in Newtownabbey, was banned from driving for four years and handed a suspended prison sentence after appearing at Belfast Magistrates' Court.

The 46-year old admitted driving while disqualified in March, and a charge of driving with no insurance - the seven time she has been charged with the crime.

The court heard that despite being a banned driver, Clarke drove a silver Ford Puma with a sticker bearing the name 'Tracey' on the vehicle.

District Judge Fiona Bagnall said: "Looking at her record, she does not believe in road traffic legislation and believes she can do whatever she likes on the road. If she is back again, she is going to jail."
