FIFO worker fined after licence suspension letter isn't seen

"I DIDN'T get the letter because I'm rarely home."

It's an excuse Magistrate Russell Warfield says he hears often from fly-in fly-out workers in regards to suspension notices from the State Penalties Enforcement Registry.

Jay Robert Andrew Ferguson appeared in the Gladstone Magistrates Court on Monday on one charge of driving without a licence demerit points.

Police Prosecutor Nina Sulzor said police had been conducting patrols in Miriam Vale on December 6 when they intercepted the defendant, who was on a suspended licence.

Ferguson pleaded guilty and was disqualified from driving for six months and fined $400.
