Ron Dennis, chairman of McLaren, was given a 6-month license suspension after running a red light near his home in Surrey, England. Having already racked up 9 demerit points on his license through previous speeding fines, Dennis was hit with another 3 for his exploits, resulting in an automatic ban.
Dennis claimed that he failed to stop due to fears that the car behind him would crash into him, since both cars were travelling at a high rate of speed. Dennis also asked the judge to give him his license back so that he could meet work and family commitments, but his request was denied.
