A 65-YEAR-OLD woman who was caught speeding three time on three separate days on the same stretch of road by the same camera has had her case adjourned to consider disqualification.

Alison Jane Jacobs, of Church Street, Falmouth, was caught driving her MG 3 too fast three times by the speed camera installed on the A394 at Longdowns in July last year.

Jacobs appeared at Truro Magistrates’ Court where she pleaded guilty to three charges of speeding in excess of 30mph on a restricted road.

She was first caught on July 3 and then again on July 15 and again on July 17 all on the same stretch of road.

The case was adjourned to January 11 at 2:30pm in Courtroom 2 at Bodmin Magistrates' Court at the request of the defence.

Jacobs was ordered to attend or to proceed to sentence in absence, to consider disqualification from driving.

The speed camera at Longdowns has caught out many unsuspecting drivers since it was first installed at the beginning of last year.

In November a farmer from Gweek was banned from driving for six months after being caught speeding five times by the same camera in just eight days while he already had 39 points on licence.

The speed camera, which has the ability to monitor drivers in both directions, caught almost 700 speeding motorists in its first full week of operation when it was installed in February.

The bi-directional camera, which detects cars on both sides of the road, has been installed on the A394 at Longdowns.
