Bigamy has its pressures

This item I found on the website of the Brussels Journal, quoting an article in The Daily Mail - I couldn't have made it up! See for the full entry.

[O]ne motorist offered what must be a unique reason why he should keep his
licence. Mohammed Anwar said a ban would make it difficult to commute
between his two wives and fulfil his matrimonial duties. His lawyer told a
Scottish court the Muslim restaurant owner has one wife in Motherwell and
another in Glasgow – he is allowed up to four under his religion – and
sleeps with them on alternate nights.

Airdrie Sheriff Court had heard that Anwar was caught driving at 64mph in a 30mph zone in Glasgow, fast enough to qualify for instant disqualification. Anwar admitted the offence, but Sheriff John C. Morris accepted his plea not to be banned and allowed him to keep his licence.
