DRIVING a car which was in generally dangerous condition with bald tyres cost a man £200 and three penalty points at Lerwick Sheriff Court on Wednesday.
The court heard that Jordan Rosie, of the town’s Lower Hillhead, had dropped the suspension on his car to the extent that two front wheels and one of the rear ones were contacting the bodywork.
Police had stopped Rosie in 1 April on the North Road after seeing the state of the car. The 19-year-old pleaded guilty to three charges relating to driving with bald tyres and driving a vehicle in a dangerous condition.

He was also given three penalty points for the speed offence and was admonished and had his licence endorsed for the bald tyre.
DRIVING a car with no insurance cost a man £355 and six penalty points at Lerwick Sheriff Court.
