Dangerous driver banned and fined after near miss with off-duty officer

A DANGEROUS driver has been banned from the roads for a year and fined £1,000 after almost crashing into an off-duty police officer on a motorbike.

Cesidio Martin Di Ciacca, 63, from Strathclyde, appeared in Fort William Sheriff Court last Friday charged with dangerous driving after overtaking a line of vehicles in the path of oncoming cars, forcing the motorists to take evasive action to avoid collision.

An off-duty police officer travelling south on the A82 to Tyndrum on June 7 2016 had to perform an emergency stop and pull onto the verge when he saw a burgundy Range Rover coming straight towards him on the Achtriochtan straight near Glencoe.
