Eight times cash was caught speeding more than once the same day – with 30 of the 33 offences taking place on the same street, Newport Road in Rumney Hill, Cardiff.

An investigation was launched by GoSafe – the police-led Welsh Road Casualty reduction partnership – to track down the repeat offender, circulating her car details.

And when the vehicle was stopped by South Wales Police for displaying a false number plate, officers found the driver had no insurance and even no driver’s licence.

The Nissan X Trail was seized by officers who established the correct registration for the vehicle and establish that Cash was the legal owner.

In a letter to Cardiff Magistrates Court, Cash admitted the speeding offences and was invited to attend a sentencing hearing to defend herself from being disqualified.

But GoSafe said she failed to attend, the case was heard in her absence on 23rd May and each 33 speeding offence was given a fine of £660 – totalling £21,780.

A further £3,866 in court costs (£3610) and victims surcharges (£256) were then added, pushing the total Cash must pay to a hefty £25,646.

GoSafe added: “Ann Marie Cash also received 18 points and an 18-month disqualification from driving.”
