A PRIVATE hire driver who collided with the rear of a parked car in the West End has had his licence renewed.

Steven Hendry was fined £280 and issued five penalty points on his licence following the incident on Byres Road in November, last year. Hendry failed to stop and leave details.

Two witnesses then left their details on the parked vehicles wind-screen to say they had seen what happened.

Mr Hendry was brought before the licensing committee to explain himself.

He said: “I was driving along Byres Road and decided to stop for a coffee when I collided with the car.

“At the time I didn’t realise I had clipped the back end of it and got a phone call from the police three days later telling me what I had done.”
