Magistrates banned an Exmouth man from drving after he was caught speeding seven times in five days

A driver from Exmouth was banned after he was caught on camera speeding seven times in five days.

The court heard four of the offences were caught on one camera in Exmouth; the others were captured on a second camera in the town.

Isvendi Yusmenov, aged 26, of Rolle Studios, in Rolle Street, failed to turn up for hearings at a traffic court in Bodmin, Cornwall; he was also absent from Magistrates court in Exeter, Devon, where he was banned from driving for six months.

The court heard Yusmenov was caught last year speeding along both Exeter Road and Salterton Road in Exmouth, in his Renault Scenic car.

His offences were on August 5, August 6, twice on August 7; once on August 9 and twice the following day, August 10.

The Exeter court legal adviser Anna Clarkson said all the offences were for going over the 30mph speed limit by doing speeds of 35-45mph.

She told magistrates the defendant had not come to court to offer any mitigation.

The court heard the charges related to ‘individual journeys’ and each speeding offence could attract between three to six points.

Ms Clarkson said: “We have not heard from Mr Yusmenov with regard to mitigation or a means form.”

Norman Shiel, Magistrate chairman, said the driver ‘had not had the courtesy to come’ to court.

Magistrates gave Yusmenov three points for each offence – a total of 21 points – for which they banned him for six months under totting up.

He was also fined £400 with £125 costs.

Yusmenov was convicted in his absence by the previous court.
