The former director of audit has been fined $1,500 for careless driving after bumping into a car outside the Airport Express MTR station in Central. Dominic Chan Yin-tat, 60, who retired from his post as the head of the government's internal watchdog in September 2003, was known for his fearlessness in exposing waste in the government. Eastern Court heard that Chan had driven to the station on July 1 last year to pick up his daughter. According to the prosecution, Chan was reversing when he hit a car registered to Fong Kwing-shun in a lay-by outside the station. The bumper of Mr Fong's car was slightly dented and the licence plate was dislodged. Mr Fong told the court yesterday that 'my whole car shook' under the impact. He said he overheard Chan telling his passenger to 'just ignore him [Fong] because he is merely playing games'. He also told the court that Chan had remarked that such traffic accidents were common. But Chan insisted his car never made contact with Mr Fong's vehicle. He claimed the car was already damaged and that Mr Fong had seized the chance to lay blame. Chan said outside court that he was extremely dissatisfied with the ruling.
