David Malcolm was caught speeding on camera on the A56 in Lancashire
A West Yorkshire couple who lied to avoid speed camera fines have been given suspended prison sentences.
Christine and David Malcolm, of Bracken Bank Grove, Keighley, pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice at Preston Crown Court.
David Malcolm, 57, was caught speeding on the A56 at Accrington in Lancashire in his wife's car on 15 June.
Mrs Malcolm, 51, claimed the offence was committed by a stolen car bearing her number plate.
David Malcolm had reported the front registration plate had been stolen a short time after triggering the speed camera, Lancashire Police said.
While police investigated her claims they discovered she had accepted penalty points on behalf of her husband on two other occasions to protect his job as a lorry driver.
David Malcolm received a 40-week prison sentence, suspended for two years. He was also given 200 hours unpaid work and ordered to pay £934 costs.
Christine Malcolm received a 20-week sentence, suspended for two years. She was also given a three month curfew order.
