A man who was caught speeding after he claimed he was late for work has been fined €300.

Jamie Martin, from Glenkeen, Milford, was spotted by Gardai overtaking another car at 100kph on a 50kph zone at Forquar, Milford in October, 2016.

When stopped by Gardai, Martin said he was rushing home to change his clothes as he was late for work.

Martin appeared before Letterkenny District Court.

Solicitor Patsy Gallagher said his client said his client admitted the offence but that he was merely rushing to be in time for work.

Judge Paul Kelly fined the accused €300.
