Shaun Colbourne was caught in West Parade, Worthing, on June 3 last year.

The 35-year-old admitted using a motor vehicle in a manner that involved danger of injury.

Colbourne, of The Quadrant, Goring, was fined £500 and given three points on his licence.

Brighton magistrates also ordered him to pay £140 costs.
