A man who was caught driving whilst disqualified on the A55 yesterday, only three weeks after being released from prison for the same offence, has been jailed again.

36-year-old Adam Anslow of Llys Delyn, Milwr near Holywell was stopped by an officer from the Roads Policing Unit on the A55 near Llangefni shortly after 9am yesterday morning (Wednesday, 18th December).

He was arrested and taken to custody where he was charged and remanded to appear before Caernarfon Magistrates this morning.

PC Gerallt Williams of the Roads Policing Unit said: “Having recently been released from prison for the same offence we hoped it would have made him think twice about getting behind the wheel whilst disqualified. Sadly this was not the case and he will now spend Christmas behind bars.

“Uninsured drivers pose a significant danger to other road users. Statistically, uninsured drivers are more likely to be involved in a serious collision, flee the scene of a collision and be criminally active. The impacts of such driving and actions can be utterly devastating for the lawful driver.

“Targeting uninsured drivers is a vital part of our work to keep everyone safe on the roads of North Wales.

The number of people who think it is acceptable to drive illegally and carelessly is shocking and we will continue to stepping up our enforcement activity against drivers who commit one of the Fatal 5 offences. Breaking the rules of the road creates risk and this sentence shows there are clear consequences for those that do.

If you know of someone who is driving whilst disqualified please let us know – either call us on 101 or report it to us online via https://www.north-wales.police.uk/contact”
