UNEMPLOYED Jack Johnson was accused of "blatantly flouting the law" when he appeared in court on driving charges.
Johnson, 62, of Queensway, Soham, admitted driving without a licence, no insurance and no MOT certificate on November 17 when he appeared before Ely Magistrates last week.
The court heard that "alcohol and driving" were a feature of Johnson's life and he couldn't afford insurance for his car. He told the court that after he had been disqualified for drink-driving he failed to reapply for his licence.
Chairman of the magistrates, Sue Griffin, told him: "We feel you are just blatantly flouting the law. You do not appear to take the action all drivers must take."
