A Dudley taxi driver has been jailed for trying to dodge a speeding fine, after being caught on camera on the A41 Black Country New Road in Sandwell on 26 June 2018. When Majid Hussain was sent a notice of intended prosecution by the central ticket office for driving at 56mph in a 40 limit, he named a fictitious person as being the driver at the time.
He was subsequently interviewed and when he was shown the photographs taken by the recording cameras, 28-year-old Hussain admitted to making up fake details. Majid Hussain of Ivanhoe Street in Dudley pleaded guilty on 30 April at Birmingham Crown Court and was sentenced on Tuesday 21 May to 10 weeks in prison.
