Former Manchester City manager Kevin Keegan was banned from driving for six months earlier today after he was caught speeding.

BBC news online said…

Keegan, 57, was caught doing 36mph in a 30mph zone on the A69 between Carlisle and Newcastle on 27 August last year – days before quitting Newcastle United.

A letter from his wife was read out at Carlisle Magistrates’ Court saying “his head was in turmoil after a meeting at Newcastle United”. Keegan, who was not in court, was also ordered to pay £800 costs.

Under the totting up procedure he now has 12 points on his licence and was given an automatic ban.

Anyone receiving driving licence penalty points have them on their licence for a full three years. Only in the fourth year do they drop off.
