Sarah Harding tried to avoid driving banby saying taking public transportation will cause so much inconvenience.
Sarah’s lawyer, Nick Freeman, tried to save her from an automatic ban by saying, as reported by the Daily Mail: ‘She would find it impossible to travel on public transport because of the attention she would attract.’
Adding: ‘She would be constantly harangued. There would be massive inconvenience. She would have to cut back her travel, see her mother less, reduce her business commitments.’
However, the judge still banned her from driving for six months. She explained that if the singer wants to avoid public transportation, she should hire a chauffeur.
Talking to Sarah, the judge said: ‘You are a normal person. I can see no reason why you shouldn’t be disqualified.’
Sarah was automatically disqualified, as the April 4th incident was her fourth driving offence of using her phone while driving.
In a statement, the 31-year-old singer admitted she has made a mistake and said that she has learned her lesson.
Aside from the 6-month driving ban, the singer was also ordered to pay £500 fine and costs of £105.
