An Invercargill man was ordered not to drive a vehicle and today told he was not fit to be on the road.

Theodore Lindon Winteringham, 24, appeared before Judge Michael Turner in the Invercargill District Court, and was remanded to October 11 for sentence for sustained loss of traction on August 9.

The court was told Winteringham had driven a heavily modified car along Sandy Point Rd, and accelerated before doing ''burnouts''.

Judge Turner said Winteringham was not fit to be on the road.

The judge also ordered that the true ownership of the car was discovered, after the court was told it was registered to a car yard where Winteringham worked.

''I wonder if your employer knows what you do with vehicles that you take off the yard,'' Judge Turner said.

As part of his bail condition he was ordered not to drive a vehicle.
