A 72 year old man was stopped, and checks revealed that his NSW Drivers Licence was suspended due to a Fine Default.

The man was arrested and taken to Coffs Harbour Police Station where he was charged with all three matters and given conditional bail to appear in Coffs Harbour Local Court on 25 January 2021.
