Nottinghamshire’s police and crime commissioner Caroline Henry has been banned from driving after she was caught speeding five times in 12 weeks.
Sky News reports that Caroline Henry, the PCC for Nottinghamshire Police, admitted the offences and told journalists waiting outside the courtroom she was “truly sorry”.
Henry was fined £2,450 and banned for six months for exceeding 30mph limits in a blue Mercedes and a Lexus with a private number plate.
There have been calls for her to step down but she previously said she wanted to stay in her £76,000 job.
Henry was captured speeding twice near a primary school in Daybrook, Nottingham; on the A610, and in Chilwell and Beeston.
She was recorded going 40mph, as well as 38mph and 35mph, during a 12-week period from March to June last year.
At a police and crime panel meeting last month, Henry had promised a road safety crackdown.
She remained “absolutely committed” to reducing speeding, according to the BBC’s Local Democracy Reporting Service.
