Footballer Kieron Dyer fined for speeding in his Porsche

after failing to turn up to court

2 August 2012

Kieron Dyer has found himself in trouble with the courts for speeding offences

Dyer had previously denied a second charge of failing to identify the driver of the Porsche.

The 33-year-old was fined £45 and ordered to pay a £15 victim surcharge for the offence, which happened in December.He had three points added to his previously clean licence.

Dyer had his QPR contract renewed in May despite playing just seven minutes in the entire season.

It's not the first time the injury-prone footballer has found himself in trouble for motoring offences.

Dyer, of Coney Byes Lane, West Bergholt, Essex, was handed a £2,000 fine and banned from driving for six months in 2010 after being caught speeding on the A12 in his Mercedes.

He was found guilty of speeding, failing to provide information on the identity of a driver and failing to produce a driving licence.

In 2002 he crashed his £100,000 Ferrari 360 Modena on the Swing Bridge over the River Tyne, just two weeks after being fined £500 and given six points for doing 80mph in a 50mph area in a BMW M3 in Lincolnshire.

He was banned for two months in 2001 and fined £1,000 for doing 104mph on the A1 in County Durham while listening to radio coverage of the US Open golf tournament.

Rio Ferdinand banned for 6 months after being caught speeding three times in five weeks

12 September 2012

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has received a six month driving ban after speeding three times in five weeks on the same road.

The former England captain was snapped in his Jaguar XJ speeding through a 30mph zone as he drove to and from training.

The 33-year-old tried to beat a ban by pleading he needed his licence to take his two sons to school. But Trafford magistrates in Greater Manchester rejected the argument and he was hit with a six-month ban.

The footballer, who was not in court, was also ordered to a £500 fine, £35 costs and a £15 victim surcharge.

Ferdinand was caught by a speed camera on the A56 in Manchester in February doing 38mph in a 30mph area.

He had been flashed for speeding at the same spot twice in January and already had three points on his licence.

Speeding charity Brake blasted the footballer for using his kids to try to beat a ban.  Spokesman Richard Coteau said: 'By repeatedly choosing to break speed limits he sends out a worrying and dangerous message.'

Manchester United declined to comment on the case.
