Katie Price, the former model, has been accused of behaving invincibly following the end of her latest driving ban. She recently got her license back after the completion of her sixth driving ban.
Her two-year ban was reduced by 24 weeks after she completed a drink-driving rehabilitation course. An insider told the Mirror that Katie feels relieved to finally have her license back, and that she thinks of herself as invincible due to her celebrity status.
However, these concerns appear to have merit. Days after getting her license back, she has already been accused of driving an untaxed and uninsured car.
She was photographed driving an SUV owned by her fiancé’s family, which showed up on the national database as being uninsured and untaxed. The car was last registered in March 2016, when it was bought by a business registered to a member of Carl Woods’s family, her fiancé.
Katie Price has a history of driving offenses. In 2021, she was involved in a one-car crash when she flipped her BMW on a country road near her Sussex home.
She tested positive for cocaine and alcohol and admitted to a string of driving offenses. During her sentencing, the former I’m A Celebrity star swerved jail over those offenses, in a move that even the judge branded as lucky.
She was given a 16-week prison sentence, but District Judge Amanda Kelly suspended the punishment, saying that her hands were tied, “even though you deserve to spend Christmas behind bars.”
Since completing her latest driving ban, Katie has been behind the wheel again and has already been pictured driving herself home from her community service in a charity shop.
That 170 hours of unpaid work was imposed on her last year after she breached a restraining order by sending abusive messages to her ex-husband Kieran Hayler about his fiancée Michelle Penticost.
In conclusion, Katie Price’s recent behavior behind the wheel has been cause for concern, given her history of driving offenses. Her behavior seems to be influenced by her celebrity status, which has led her to think of herself as invincible.
While she has completed a drink-driving rehabilitation course and had her latest driving ban reduced, her recent alleged offenses suggest that more needs to be done to ensure that she drives safely and responsibly on the road.
