(Daily Mail) A female student was banned from driving after going too slowly on a dual carriage away in her S-type Jaguar. |
Dongfang Jiao, 23, caused a line of traffic to build up behind her on the outside lane of the urban dual carriageway in Stirling, which led to other motorists calling the police.
Witnesses said she was driving in a 'zig-zag movement' and pulled suddenly to the left after indicating to turn right.
The student, who is studying at Stirling University, was 'exercising her right' to practise driving in the UK on a Chinese licence, Stirling Sheriff Court heard.
But she has since decided to give up motoring until she returns to China in early autumn.
Adrian Fraser, prosecuting, said the incident occurred about 8.40pm on November 10.
A witness driving along the Burghmuir Road dual carriageway, which carries the A9 through Stirling, said she came across 'a line of queuing traffic'.
Mr Fraser said: 'Looking ahead, she saw the reason for that was the accused's vehicle was being driven very slowly in the offside lane, causing other vehicles to undertake to get by, causing the queue that was building up.'
In due course the witness came up to Jiao's car, a Jaguar S-type V6 Se automatic, which has a top speed of 140mph.
But she was afraid to undertake as it was being driven 'very slowly in zig-zag movement' in the outside lane, coming close to the central reservation, and other vehicles.
Jiao then indicated to turn right, but in fact pulled in left, in front of the following driver, nearly causing a collision, the court heard.
