A disqualified driver who operated a stolen taxi was jailed for three years by the District Court yesterday. Tommy Mok Chi-kuen, 45, was arrested after a high-speed police chase from Causeway Bay, along the Island Eastern Corridor and then through the Eastern Harbour Tunnel, during which he jumped red lights, drove against traffic and hit other vehicles, reaching a top speed of 150km/h. His taxi, displaying a false vehicle licence, was forced to stop when he hit a police vehicle parked at the toll gate as he exited the tunnel in Lam Tin at around 6pm on January 24. He then assaulted six police officers, injuring five of them. Mok had pleaded guilty to dangerous driving, driving while disqualified and driving without insurance. Deputy Judge Anthony Yuen Wai-ming also convicted him yesterday of three charges he had denied: theft, resisting arrest and possessing a false instrument. In passing sentencing, the judge said the 'selfish' driver had ignored the safety of other road users. Mok was disqualified from driving for six months on January 21 but continued to operate a stolen taxi, which was reported lost last August, the court was told. He apologised to his victims in a mitigation letter written to the judge. Mok was also disqualified from driving for three years yesterday. Police had spotted Mok breaching a traffic rule on Sugar Street on January 24 but when they approached his taxi, Mok fled. He crashed into a car near Siu Sai Wan and later hit a motorcycle in the Eastern Harbour Tunnel, injuring the rider. He was finally forced to stop when he hit a police vehicle at the toll gate on the Kowloon side of the tunnel.
