Lara can't afford another bingle
MODEL-turned reality TV star Lara Bingle can officially add serial road pest to her list of titles after being warned by a Sydney judge on Tuesday she would be jailed if she continued to break the rules.
The unlicensed 25-year-old, whose car struck a woman motorcyclist at Bondi Beach earlier this year, pleaded guilty in the Waverley Local Court to three traffic offences.
For a woman who had a chauffeur-driven black Jaguar waiting for her outside, a $3500 fine may not have provided much of a deterrent, but Magistrate John Williams hoped stern words and a 12-month driving suspension would do the trick.
He told Bingle her driving record was "not good" and warned she would face jail if she drove during the suspension period.
