He had been driving a Mercedes on December 9, 2021 on the southbound M57 with cargo “not properly secured and bouncing around” and “of a nature such as to present a risk of injury to persons when it was used,” according to a court paper.
Price was fined £100 and had to pay a £34 surcharge and £120 in costs to the prosecutor, totaling £254.
In addition, his driver’s license was revoked for six months.
A motion to stay the imposed driver’s license suspension was granted pending the hearing of the appeal.
