Two Footballers Banned From Driving

By raccars Published

It seems even millions in the bank and the best lawyers in the land can’t stop the British judicial system, as two high profile footballers have recently been banned from driving for six months. Patrick Viera, ex-Arsenal ace and current Manchester City development executive, was caught doing 61mph in a 50mph zone and has subsequently been given a six month ban.

Newcastle United striker Demba Ba has suffered a similar penalty – see what we did there – as he’s been handed a six month ban and a fine of £1,000 after he was caught speeding twice and failing to appear at court three times.

It seems footballers aren’t protected, so for all those players with fancy supercars – watch your speed!
