Licence returned despite ‘horrific’ driving history

A DRIVER with an “horrific” traffic record has had her licence returned after being convicted of unlicensed driving and refusing a drug test.

Bianca Meredith, 23, has a lengthy rap sheet including reckless conduct endangering life, multiple counts of unlicensed and disqualified driving, drink-driving and speeding.

She was banned for two years for refusing a drug test and driving without a licence last March, which was reduced to a year on appeal.

Wodonga magistrate John Murphy this week said she had an “horrific record”, and asked a prosecutor if they wanted to question her during her licence application.

“I’ve been here before when Ms Meredith has lied to the court, so I don’t see the point,” the officer replied.
