A WOMAN used her partner's tax disk on her car when her own had run out, a court has heard.
Lynne Smith, 51, pleaded guilty to fraudulently altering her tax disc and driving without an MOT at South East Suffolk Magistrates' Court on March 5.
The court heard that on December 29 last year a police officer was on patrol in Bury Road, Ipswich, shortly before 6am when a red Astra drove past.
Gareth Davies, prosecuting, said: “Checks were carried out and it was discovered there was no tax for the car.
“The officer stopped the car and saw that the disk in use was for another vehicle. It was her partner's one.”
Smith, of Curriers Lane, Ipswich, was fined £250 and made to pay £55 costs.
